What is Positive Adverbs

  • English -

    Adverb - A word that modifies a phrase, expressing a relation of place, time, circumstance, manner, cause, degree, etc
    Positive adverb - an adverb in its original state; not comparative or superlative.

    Unlike Comparative adverbs, Positive degree adverbs express the quality without comparison.

    Examples in the sentence are:
    I dance GRACEFULLY.
    I CAREFULLY walk.
    He PATIENTLY wait for me.

    Comparative adverbs will be,
    I dance MORE GRACEFULLY than her.
    I walk MORE CAREFULLY than him.
    He wait for me MORE PATIENTLY than Edd
