So you think that adverbs sound dull? Language--and life--would be dull without adverbs. Compare the following short paragraphs:
Adverbs are used to describe action verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs:
It's important to note that adverbs do not describe all verbs; they describe only action verbs and not "state of being" verbs (such as "feel" or "be"). "State of being" verbs use adjectives to describe them. In other words, the person who ate too much food feels "bad," not "badly," since the descriptive word here refers to a feeling or state of being and not an actual action.
The general rule is that adverbs are formed by adding -ly to adjectives.
