You are watching: Adverbs can modify all except which part of speech?


An adverb is a part of speech that modifies a verb, an adjective, and another adverb. When an adverb modifies another adverb, an adverb can answer questions regarding the extent to which that adverb modifies the other adverb.

Some examples of adverbs modifying other adverbs would be the following:

Abdullah finished his test somewhat hastily. (To what extent did Abdullah finish his test hastily?)

The restaurant is almost fully booked. (To what extent is the restaurant fully booked?)

Isadora jogs quite frequently. (To what extent does Isadora jog frequently?)

Cheyenne is often sharply dressed. (To what extent is Cheyenne sharply dressed?)
