Feedback and Review:

 

Adverbs are words that modify.  Adverbs often tell when, where, why, or under what conditions something happens or happened.  Adverbs frequently end in -ly; however, many words and phrases not ending in -ly serve an adverbial function and an -ly ending is not a guarantee that a word is an adverb.  The words lovely, lonely, motherly, friendly, neighborly, for instance, are adjectives.  For further practice, click here http://a4esl.org/q/h/vm/adjadv.html.
