LESSON 26 ADVERBS
 
Most adverbs not formed from verbs cannot be compared. Words like now, too, then, not, already, again, always, yesterday, almost, why, and here.


 

Find the adverbs in these sentences. Remember that adverbs tell us how, when, where, why, and how much.


 

1. Today or tomorrow I should finish my technically difficult work.
2. Don't leave me alone.
3. Where did you go yesterday.
4. It is too windy for me to go again.
5. Finally he is going away.



 

Answers


 

1. today, tomorrow, technically
2. n't, alone
3. where, yesterday
4. too, again
5. finally, away


 

-----------
 

Do not use two negative words to limit one idea. Be careful not to use not or n't, no, never, none, hardly, scarcely, or nothing with another negative word.


 

Examples: Correct - Jim never likes help. Jim likes no help. Incorrect - Jim never likes no help. Correct - Barbara said nothing. Barbara didn't say anything. Incorrect - Barbara didn't say nothing.
