Adverbs Modifying Other Adverbs

May 22, 2021

An adverb can tell to what extent another adverb modifies a word. An adverb that modifies another adverb is called an intensifier.

My sister runs very fast. (Very tells how fast she runs.)
Almost daily my teacher gives us a quiz. (Almost tells how daily.)

Position of Adverbs

Adverbs that modify other adverbs must go directly before the adverbs they modify.

It seems like my dog can run unusually quickly when she’s chasing a cat.
