brain-2062057_960_720The way the mind works is absolutely fabulous. Though, you mix our brains with the means of the English language and our brains are suddenly feeling attacked. I am solely attacking adverbs and adjectives.

Adverbs modify verbs, making them more descriptive. Whilst adjectives describe a noun or pronoun. How are they even different? That is a good question. Adverbs make a sentence more interesting but on the flip side so do adjectives.

For example the classic sentence “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog”. This example has the adjective placed within it. The adverb version instead would be “The quick brown jumped quickly over the lazy dog”. Basically the adverb makes it a more informative sentence by just adding a “ly”, fascinating…

One word that our brains may find an attack may be “late”, ahh, does this make our brain stumble. Late can be an adverb or adjective that means after the correct time.  An example is “I am not hungry as I had a late lunch” this would be an example of an adjective.  It is describing the word lunch. “He slept late and missed his first class”, this is an example of an adverb. As it is describing the verb which is sleep.

This is a complicated ideology to wrap our brains around, ironically.

 

After more research into this it may be expanded, comments on this topic would be appreciated :).
