An adverb is a part of speech that modifies a verb, an adjective, another adverb, a phrase, or a clause.[1] In English, many adverbs are derived from adjectives by the suffix -ly, as seen in the following examples:

  • quickly from quick
  • cheerily from cheery (note the orthographic change in the original adjective)
