Today’s topic is the order of adverbs.

An adverb is a word that gives more information about a verb, an adjective, another adverb, or even an entire sentence. It can be one word or an adverbial phrase:

  • Emma loved her son deeply.
  • Emma loved her son with all her heart.

They describe:

how an action is done (adverbs of manner):
  • She pushed him gently.
  • Karen not only sang and danced beautifully but also looked absolutely gorgeous.
Where (adverbs of place):
  • Will and Mary saw a famous football player at the cinema last night.
  • We’re meeting our friends at the Red Lion tomorrow.
When (adverbs of time):
  • Sara s meeting her friend at the cafeteria at 7 o’clock.
  • Tom and Sandra arranged to set off early tomorrow.

If there is more than one adverb, their order is usually like this:

MANNER – PLACE – TIME

  • The New York Knicks played marvellously in Boston last night.
  • The children were having a great time in the park yesterday morning.

Sometimes we place the adverb at the beginning of the sentence before the subject:

  • Yesterday, it was raining all day.
  • Sometimes, I like to have my tea in the evening.
