Lesson 17: Comparison Of Adverbs


grammar lesson 17 scene"Like adjectives, many adverbs change their form to show a difference in the ideas being expressed." It is a crisp autumn afternoon and Marie is singing as she does some yard work. Armed with gardening shears and a wheelbarrow, she prunes the bushes that line her lawn and then dumps the cuttings onto an enormous compost pile above the high tide line on the beach, all the while teaching us about the three degrees of adverbs: positive, comparative and superlative; and the three forms of comparison: regular, phrasal, and irregular. She also explains why some adverbs, by reason of their meaning, cannot be compared, and provides a list of examples.
