Ok, below is a paragraph from a movie review I picked out. I have to identify 5 adverbs and 5 adjectives. I am a bit lost with the adverbs. This is what I identified so far. I know adverbs tell how, where, when, how often and why something happens, but I am not seeing them. Thanks for any input.

Battle sequence design was a little sleepy, and although the introductory "big"(adjective) battle scenes involving soldiers of the Crusade were "plentiful"(adjective), it didn't go beyond the usual slash-parry- stab-wash-rinse-repeat cycle coupled with "cheesy"(adjective) dialogue exchange between Behman and Felson that try to pass off as comedy. There's an "awfully"(Adverb) long and "painfully"(Adverb) executed crossing of a "creaky"(adjective) bridge that doesn't seem to want to end, but otherwise passable CG was employed in an attack of wolves, and the money shot in the final battle where all hell breaks loose "in" (Adverb) the monastery with "grotesque"(adjective) looking winged beasts and the expected big boss to fight in an all out melee done arcade style."

    I find the following adverbs:

    LITTLE (Although little is usually an adjective, in this sentence it's an adverb, modifying the adjective, "sleepy."

    N'T (This is an abbreviation of "not."

    OFF (modifies "pass)

    IN is not an adverb. It's a preposition.

    The two adverbs you identified are correct.

  • Grammar -

    "in" is a preposition, not an adverb.

    Try putting some of these words in where they make good sense:

    very
    mostly
    fast
    later
    earlier
    rather
    quite
    best
    (and there are other examples in that linked webpage above)

    So the word Doesn't will constitute as an adverb or only if it was spelled out as does not? Thanks for the pervious reply!!!

  • Grammar -

    Yes. "Doesn't" is a contraction of the verb, "does," and the adverb, "not."

  • Grammar -

    Thank you Writeacher although I am not writing it, I am only finding the adverbs in the paragraph in its current form.

  • Grammar -

    You guys are great!!! Thank you for the insight!!!!!
