Forma: Adverbele se formeaza in diferite feluri:
unele adverbe sunt cuvinte independente:
often, when?, now, very, soon, always
unele adverbe au aceeasi forma ca adjectivele: daily, early, fast, low, straight, well, back, enough, far, ill, little, long, pretty, near, wrong, still, short, late, high, left, right, hard
Dintre aceste adverbe, unele au si o forma in –LY dar sensul este altul:
HardLY = very little They were highly impatient.
LateLY = recently It hasn’t rained lately.
NearLY = almost Dinner is nearly ready.
ShortLY = soon, briefly Mr. Smith will be here shortly.
PrettiLY = attractively The baby was prettily dressed.
Dupa be, become, feel, get, look, seem, folositi un adjectiv (nu un adverb).
She felt happy.
Mrs. Poole looks tired.
unel adverbe (in special cele de mod si grad) se formeaza adaugand adjectivelor terminatia –LY:
kind, kindly automatic, automatically slow, slowly
simple, simply happy, happily careful, carefully
Adverbul corespunzator lui Good este Well.
Unel cuvinte terminate in –LY sunt adjective (nu adverbe)!
Lonely, lovely, likely, friendly, ugly, silly
y final se schimba in –i: merry, merrily (dar shy, shyly)
-e final se pastreaza: wise, wisely (dar true, truly)
daca se termina in consoana
+ -le, –e dispare si se adauga -y: gentle, gently
cuvintelor terminate in –ic scientific, scientifically
li se adauga –ally: (dar public, publicly)
