Basic Grammar: Comparing Adverbs
http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/2895-basic-grammar-lesson-17-comparison-of-adverbs "Like adjectives, many adverbs change their form to show a difference in the ideas being expressed." It is a crisp autumn afternoon and Marie is singing as she does some yard work, all the while teaching us about the three degrees of adverbs: positive, comparative and superlative; and the three forms of comparison: regular, phrasal, and irregular. She also explains why some adverbs, by reason of their meaning, cannot be compared, and provides a list of examples. Workbook exercises and answer key are provided with this lesson.
