Example sentences for: adverb

How can you use “adverb” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The first adverb casually banalizes German brutality; the second diminishes its extent; together, they come dangerously close to apologia.

  • Although it is standard to use the adverb directly for right away, it is not used as much now in American English as formerly.

  • As Koslowska correctly points out, the choice of adverb or adjective depends largely on the verb, adverb, or substantive being modified.

  • After all, the use of a hyphen in adverb/adjective compounds is a matter of style, which can be described in a rule: in position before a noun, compounds with well --indeed, any not ending in - ly --like well-heeled, well-known, well-thought-out , are hyphenated, as in well-heeled gambler, well-known man-about-town, a well-thought-out plan ; but when they are in predicative position, as in Is she well heeled enough to sit in on our game?

  • In addition to being eminently readable, my super-sentence is characterized by two clever strokes: a clause within a phrase within phrase within a clause within a phrase in the first five words, and the distillation of the adverb clause into a two-word cluster, “when [he was] challenged,” instead of the previous three words, “more than I.” Not only are all the structures as concise as they can be, but, with the exception of the subject, Leadere , all nouns, adjectives, and adverbs are now replaced by phrases and clauses.
