Unit 64: ADJECTIVES & ADVERBS
Adjectives tell us something about a noun or pronoun.
Adjectives do not have a plural form. We use the same form for singular nouns (rough board), plural nouns (rough boards, NOT roughs boards) and mass nouns (heavy equipment).
Many words are only adjectives, but sometimes we can make adjectives from
the -ing form of a verb: hammering noise
a past participle: loud workers
a noun: tool belt
We can make many ADJECTIVES into ADVERBS with -ly. For example:
ADJECTIVE: bad, careful, slow, probable, happy
ADVERB: badly, carefully, slowly, probably, happily
These words are ADJECTIVES and also ADVERBS:
He is a hard worker.
He is a fast worker.
It's an early train.
She was late.
He works hard.
He works fast.
It arrives early.
She arrived late.
This ADJECTIVE has an irregular form for its ADVERB:
He is a good worker.
He works well.
