    Adverb or Adjective

    Are those words in parentheses adverb or adjective?

    1. Don't go too (high).
    2. fly (high)
    3. sleep (tight)

    Thanks a lot!

    This looks like homework.

    "NOT A TEACHER"

    Hiya Raymond! why don't you look those up in a dictionary? I personally did. In this situation they are adverb. But of course they are used as adjective.

    Note if I am wrong please someone correct me.

    They function as adverbs in the sentences given. They can function as adjectives in other contexts.
