Re: Question About The Use Of Adverbs
Very can be an adverb or an adjective. It depends on the sentence. For example,
- In a high degree; extremely: very happy; very much admired.
- Truly; absolutely: the very best advice; attended the very same schools.
- Very Used in titles: the Very Reverend Jane Smith.
- Complete; absolute: at the very end of his career; the very opposite.
- Being the same one; identical: the very question she asked yesterday.
- Being particularly suitable or appropriate: the very item needed to increase sales.
- Being precisely as stated: the very center of town.
- Mere: The very thought is frightening.
- Actual: caught in the very act of stealing.
- Genuine; true: "Like very sanctity, she did approach" (Shakespeare).
