Comparative Adverbs

Adverbs in the comparative form describe verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.

Adverbs usually end in “ly”

Making the comparative form for adverbs is not as easy as making the comparative form for adjectives. Remember, most adverbs end in “ly,” so most adverbs are two-syllable words; therefore, you will usually use “more” in front of the adverb to make the comparison.

Many Americans ignore the rules for comparative adverbs, but you should still learn how to use them properly.

(“more quickly” describes the verb “get.” “Get” is a verb.)

A laptop computer allows her to do her work more efficiently.

Some adverbs have only one syllable and don’t add “ly.”
