Adverb Quizzes & Trivia

This quiz is about the difference between being quick and acting quickly – between answering thoughtfully and being thoughtful. Adverbs modify sentences in a way that other parts of speech can’t – but what makes a word an adverb? How can they be used? If ‘forcefully’ and ‘factually’ and ‘feebly’ are adverbs, why aren’t words like ‘friendly’ and ‘family’?

Adverbs liven up our language; why do just do things when you can do them joyfully or jubilantly? Why go for a walk when you could go briskly, brashly, or barefoot? Why write any old sentence when you could write it whimsically, wittily, and well? Make an English teacher happy today by taking our quiz to learn all about adverbs – and do it soon, swiftly, and studiously.
