    Adjectives----> Modify Nouns: The beautiful sunset
    Adverbs---> Modify Verbs: He runs slowly

    Adverbs
    Spellling rules to form adverbs:
    Angry--->angrily---> The "Y" changes for a "i" and adds a "LY"
    Careful--->Carefully---> Adds "LY"
    Terrible--->Terribly--->Drop the "E" andd adds a "Y"
    Adverbs end in Consonant adds "LY"

    Irregular Adverbs:
    Good--->Well
    Fast--->Fast
    Early--->early
    Hard--->hard
    Late--->late
