    Re: please differentiate

    Adjectives and adverbs both modify -- but they modify different things.

    Adjectives modify nouns: "This is a big book".

    Adverbs modify verbs: "She walks slowly". Adverbs can sometimes also modify adjectives: "This is a very big book"; or even whole sentences: "Unfortunately, he had an accident".

    (Some books say "qualify" instead of "modify". It's the same thing.)
