adverb (s) (noun), adverbs (pl)
A term used to "modify" and describe, or to make the meaning of a verb, an adjective, or another adverb more specific: Most adverbs are formed by adding -ly to adjectives, however some adjectives that end in ic add ally, like "basic", "basically". Others, such as "well", "far", "low", "hard", "early", and "fast" have the same form as adjectives.

In summary: adverbs tell manner (how), time (when), place (where), degree (how much), and sometimes cause (why).

Adverbs of manner: politely, carefully, not, equally, tenderly.

Adverbs of time: now, then soon, later, early, often.

Adverbs of place: here, there, near, forward, far.

Adverbs of degree: very, so, much, too, extremely, rather.

Adverbs of cause: why, therefore, hence.

adverbial (adverb), more adverbial, most adverbial
Pertaining to how a word modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb: The adverbial term in this sentence is "very": This is a very beautiful dress." The adverb "very" intensifies the adjective "beautiful".

An adverb that modifies a verb answers any of four questions: "Where?", "When?", "In what manner?", and "To what extent?"

An adverb that modifies an adjective or another adverb, answers "To what extent?" When an adverb functions in this second manner, it is often called an "intensifier" because it increases or decreases the intensity of the adjective or the adverb it modifies.
