Hi, I'm Heather Kamins for About.com, and I'm here to explain what an adverb is.An adverb is a part of speech that acts as a modifier. It often modifies a verb. For example: The girl ran quickly. The adverb quickly describes how the girl ran. An adverb can also modify an adjective. So for example: The ship was truly grand. The adverb truly modifies the adjective grand, which modifies the noun, ship.An adverb can even modify another adverb. So for example: His friends were very deeply grateful. The adverb very modifies the adverb deeply, which modifies the adjective grateful, which modifies the noun friends. They can even modify certain clauses, phrases - even complete sentences.Thanks for watching. To learn more, visit us on the web at About.com.
