An adverb is a word that gives more information about a verb, an adjective or another adverb. An adverb describes verbs, adjectives and adverbs according to qualities like time, frequency and manner. Although most verbs end in -ly but not all words that end in -ly are adverbs (daily - is an adjective, family is a noun and apply is a verb). Often an adjective can be converted into an adverb by adding -ly, for example, slowly, neatly, heavily. There are two types of adverbs - adverbs of time and adverbs of frequency. Adverbs of time tells you when something happens, for example, now, then, here. Adverbs of frequency tell how often something happens, for example, always, never, rarely.
