Explanatory Words

Explanatory WordsA word that explains a motion word, a picture word, or an explanatory word itself, is called an Adverb. It may be a Simple Adverb, as hurriedly, cleverly, sparely.

It may be a Phrasal or Compound Adverb, such as nowadays, arm in arm, now and again.

Adverbs may explain time, such as now, then, soon, never, forever; or place, suchas here, there, everywhere, thence; degree, suchas so, too, nearly, almost, quite, somewhat;reason, suchas therefore, consequently, purposely, wherefore; manner, suchas busily, anxiously, cleverly.

They may denote negation, such as no, not, or affirmation, such as yes, yea, certainly, probably, assuredly, doubtless, indeed, perhaps.
Adverbs are compared as adjectives are.
