    Types of adverbs

    How many categories do adverbs fall into? Do they fall into the following categories or there are more categories?



    1. Adverbs of manner: You speak so fast.
    2. Adverbs of frequency: I always listen to music while I study.
    3. Adverbs of place: Last night, a burglar broke into my house.
    4. Adverbs of time: I have not seen Frank since last month.


    Please note that I'm looking for general types of adverbs. I know that adverbs have other functions too, for example as an adjective intensifier.

    And the last question, what type of adverb is "really"?

    There is not really a lake here, it is just a mirage.

    Re: Types of adverbs

    That was, mostly, because you used a good title for your post.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
