Adverbs of manner say how something happens or is done.

Examples are: happily, angrily, slowly, carefully, fast etc.


Adverbs of manner normally go in end position (at the end of a clause).

An adverb of manner modifying an adjective or another adverb normally goes before it.

Points to be noted

1. Adverbs of manner can come in mid position if the adverb is not important to the meaning of the verb.

2. If there is a preposition before the object, we can place the adverb either before the preposition or after the object.

3. To emphasize the point, sometimes, an adverb of manner is placed before the main verb.

4. Some writers put adverbs of manner at the beginning of a sentence to catch our attention.
