Homework Help: Grammar

Posted by Pegg on Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 3:57pm.

IN the following sentence what words are the adverbs? "Up went the curtain and down went our spirits."

I would choose Up and Down, only I thought they were prepositions? Now I am confused. thanks Pegg

You chose correctly. In this case up and down are adverbs because they modify the verb "went" by themselves, and not as part of a prepositional phrase.
