Adverbs
 
Adverbs are words that are used to describe verbs and adjectives. Adverbs can be omitted (left out) from a sentence that contains the verbs and that they describe. In other words, a sentence in English is still proper (correct) if it does not contain an adverb preceding (before) the verb/adjective.
  
Examples of  proper sentences Examples of  improper sentences
Basil is a smart boy. (no adverb)

Basil is a very smart boy.
 
Basil is extremely smart.
Basil is a very boy.
The girl danced gracefully.

The dragon flew majestically.
The dancer is gracefully.

The dragon flew majestic. (Note: majestic is an adjective.)

Many adverbs have the suffix -ly. Examples include extremely, gracefully, beautifully, rapidly and majestically, to name a few. These are adjectives with the suffix -ly.

Words with the
suffix -ly that are adjectives include timely, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. These examples are nouns with the added suffix -ly. An example sentence is

This is an weekly newsletter.

The word weekly describes the newsletter (which is a
noun and hence, is an adjective.)
