Adjectives are a word in the English language that modifies a noun or a pronoun. An adverb is allowed to come before the word that it is changing. These terms tend to be the source of common errors for ESL learners or even high school English students.
- I have never seen such a cute baby!
- It is not common to see such calm people here.
Adverbs are words in the English language that can modify a verb, adjective, or even other adverbs. If you want to know if a word is an adverb, you can see if that word asks how, when, where, why, to what extent, how often, or how much as a linking verb.
- As he gets older, he sees poorly
- Let’s go inside; it looks like it is beginning to rain.
