Quick Refresher

Adverbs are words that describe (modify) verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.

They tell us how, when, where, to what extent, and why. (We call those the adverb questions.)

Sentence Diagramming + Adverbs = Awesome

Seeing lists is a great way to learn what an adverb is. Sentence diagramming can teach you what an adverb does.

Sentence diagramming is a visual way to show how the words in a sentence are related to each other.

You already know that adverbs are words that modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Diagramming will show this to you. Adverbs are diagrammed on a slanted line underneath the word that they modify.

I hope this list helped you. Thanks for stopping by!
