    NOT A TEACHER


    Tipu,


    If you go to the "search" box at this website and type in

    "adverbs modify nouns," you will find some helpful threads.

    For example, one thread gives this example:

    The concert [noun] tomorrow [adverb] [should be interesting].

    *****

    Ms. Constance Weaver in her Grammar for Teachers gives this

    example:

    The man [noun] inside [adverb] stole the money.

    Ms. Weaver says that is a short way of saying:

    The man that is inside stole the money.

    THANK YOU & HAVE A NICE DAY
