An adverb describes how a verb is done. Just like adjectives describe nouns, adverbs describe verbs.

We will see adverbs of manner (e.g. how, well, better, easily) and adverbs of place (e.g. when, where, whence, whither)

Creating adverbs of manner

Adverbs of manner describe or ask how a verb is done. We can make adverbs of manner in Hungarian by starting with an adjective and adding endings. For example:

  • gyors quick
  • gyorsan quickly

For a reference of how to create adverbs, see the adverb building page.
