3.) Forma adverbelor in engleza :

a.) Adverbe simple in engleza

Adverbele simple din engleza pot fi despartite in alte parti. Exista un numar mare de adverbe care provin din adjective, fara sa-si schimbe forma, dar cu sensuri diferite.

- din adjective prin conversiune, deci nu isi schimba forma.

-  din adjective carora li s-a adaugat sufixul -ly

- din alte parti de vorbire (participii, substantive sau alte adverbe) carora li s-a adaugat sufixul -ly

Adverbele in engleza se formeaza de cele mai multe ori prin adaugarea lui -ly la forma de singular a adjectivului ( quick-quickly, slow-slowly).

Cateva adverbe precum: afar, anew, below, aloud, sunt derivate din adjective prin adaugarea unui prefix.


We saw them afar = I-am vazut de departe.

Let’s start anew = Sa o luam de la inceput.

Alte adverbe sunt derivate din substantive, prin adaugarea unor prefixe sau sufixe: across, away, besides, daily, weekly.
