Adverbs are words that describe how, when, and

Adverbs are words that describe how, when, and where actions take place. They can modify verbs, adjectives, and even other adverbs. In previous lessons, you have already learned many Spanish adverbs, such as the ones below. Copyright 2008 Vista Higher Learning. All rights reserved. 1.4-1 The

most common adverbs end in -mente, equivalent to the English ending -ly. Copyright 2008 Vista Higher Learning. All rights reserved. 1.4-2 To form these adverbs, add -mente to the feminine form of the adjective. If the adjective does not have a special feminine form, just add -mente to the standard form. Atencin! Adjectives do not lose their accents when

adding -mente. Copyright 2008 Vista Higher Learning. All rights reserved. 1.4-3 Atencin! When a sentence contains two or more adverbs in sequence, the suffix -mente is dropped from all but the last adverb. Example: El mdico nos habl simple y abiertamente. The doctor spoke to us simply and openly.

Copyright 2008 Vista Higher Learning. All rights reserved. 1.4-4 Adverbs that end in -mente generally follow the verb, while adverbs that modify an adjective or another adverb precede the word they modify. Copyright 2008 Vista Higher Learning. All rights reserved. 1.4-5

Atencin! Rpido functions as an adjective (Ella tiene una computadora rpida.) as well as an adverb (Ella corre rpido.). Note that as an adverb, rpido does not need to agree with any other word in the sentence. You can also use the adverb rpidamente (Ella corre rpidamente). Copyright 2008 Vista Higher Learning.
