  3. The word "push" is usually either a noun or a verb -- or it can be something else in technical language depending on how it's used in a sentence. In your sentence, "push" is being used to tell what kind of technique, right? If a word is describing a noun, what is it?

    Yes, "carefully" is an adverb -- it tells HOW the ligament was incised.
