    What are the usages of adverb?


    Are the following sentences correct and Are there others usages I did not mention below?

    I usually make pizza every friday. (The adverb of frequency usually describes the verb make )


    She is driving fast. ( Fast is an adverb describes the verb be )


    she sincerely apologize for the delay ( the adverb sincerely describes the verb apologies)

    NOT A TEACHER

    I have found some information that may interest you.

    1. "I sincerely remember telling the truth."

    a. The adverb "sincerely" modifies "remember."

    2. "I remember telling the truth sincerely."

    a. The adverb "sincerely" modifies "telling the truth."
