An adverb tells how, where, or when an action happens. An adverb usually describes a verb. For example, slept late. "Late" is an adverb that describes the action "slept." An adverb can be written before or after the verb it describes. Adverbs that tell how something happens or happened often end in --ly. For example: slowly walked.
