    An adverb gives description to a verb, much as an adjective helps describe a noun.


    Examples: 


    Sue ran quickly.   VERB:  ran (what she did)   ADVERB:  quickly  (how she did it)


    Carl made an excellent meal.  NOUN:  meal (a thing)  ADJECTIVE: excellent (what kind of meal)


    Other adverb examples:


    The saw buzzed noisily.   Jim swims well.   Donnie shyly gave his speech.    Note, an adverb often ends in 'ly'.    She sang happily, loudly, and off-key  (all tell HOW she sang)

    It's a word that denotes how, when , or where
