Spanish Adverbs

By OptiLingo

Whereas adjectives describe nouns and pronouns, adverbs describe adjectives, verbs and other adverbs. In English, adverbs are formed by adding –ly to adjectives. In Spanish, many adverbs are formed by adding –mente to the feminine form of the adjective.

absolute absuloto
absolutely absolutamente
clear claro
clearly claramente
exact exacto
exactly exactamente
happy feliz
happily felizmente
rapid rapido
rapidly rapidamente
sweet dulce
sweetly dulcumente

There are also many common adverbs that are not formed using the –mente ending.

a lot mucho
always siempre
badly mal
here aqui
little poco
never nunca
now ahora
over there alli
quite bastante
slowly despacio
so tan
there ahi
tomorrow manana
too demasiado
very muy
worse peor
yesterday ayer
yet, now ya
