What is “Adverb?”


A word that modifies the meaning of verb and adjective or another adverb is called an adverb.

क्रियाविशेषण हे क्रियापद, विशेषण किंवा दुसऱ्या क्रियाविशेषण अव्ययाविषयी अधिक माहिती देत असते.

The adverbs tell how things are done.

क्रियाविशेषण हे आपल्याला सांगत असते की एखादी गोष्ट कशी घडली.
