    Default Adverbs vs. adjectives

    Hi there,

    I tend to mix up adverbs and adjectives. I have a difficult time differentiating them from each other. Is there anything I can do to make it easier to remember which are which?

    Default Re: Adverbs vs. adjectives

    An adjective is a describing word (i.e. quick, slow).
    A verb is a doing word (i.e. run, walk).

    So when an adjective describes a verb (i.e. he ran quickly, he walked slowly) you get an adverb.

    Get it?

    If you are still unsure, don't be afraid to say. Someone else may give a better explanation.
