Order of Adverbs

Published by My Lingua Academy on

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.

  • Where (adverbs of place):

We saw him at the cinema.

  • and when (adverbs of time):

She met him at 7 o’clock.

If there is more than one adverb, they usually go like this:

MANNER – PLACE – TIME

The New York Knicks played marvellously in Boston last night.

We were walking in the park in the afternoon.

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.
