Adverbs and Adverbial Phrases

The content provides an in-depth exploration of adverbs, their flexibility in modifying various parts of speech, and the introduction to adverbial phrases and clauses.
  • Adverbs are versatile words that can modify a verb, an adjective, or another adverb, answering questions like how, why, where, and when.
  • Many adverbs end in 'ly', but there are exceptions, with some common adverbs ending in suffixes like 'ward' and 'wise'.
  • Adverbs can be a single word or a group of words, known as adverbial phrases or clauses, which add necessary information to a sentence.
  • The role of adverbs, adverbial phrases, and clauses in sentences is crucial for understanding logical predication, a topic further explored in relation to the GMAT.
