|An adjective is a describing word. It describes nouns or pronouns. Adjectives can tell:
slow - slowly
delightful - delightfully
hopeless - hopelessly
aggressive - aggressively
However, this is NOT a reliable way to find out whether a word is an adverb or not, for two reasons: many adverbs do NOT end in -ly (some are the same as the adjective form), and many words which are NOT adverbs DO end in -ly (such as kindly, friendly, elderly and lonely, which are adjectives). Here are some examples of adverbs that are same as adjectives:
Directions: Identify if the underlined words are adjectives or adverbs. Write in your own words differences between adjectives and adverbs and write at least five examples each of adjectives and adverbs.
