The definition of an adverb is words and phrases that describe

or limit the meaning of a verb, an adjective,or a whole sentence.

Adverbs answer the questions when, where, why, in what manner, or

to what extent. An adverb is a adjective (usually ending in "ly"),

that describes a verb. E.g: The boy ran Swiftly.
