Рэп-опера про наречия

Наречия, считается, заканчиваются в английском на -ly, но только есть немало наречий без этого окончания. И, наоборот, прилагательное с ним. А есть такие, что одновременно являются и прилагательным, и наречием.

Эти четыре стиха, практически мини-рэп-опера, поможет вам разобраться в этом.

Adverbs which don’t end with -ly

Seldom, sometimes, here, there, nowhere and never

Later, well, fine, anywhere, everywhere

Soon, little, less, much, more, least, most, somewhere.

Just ,low, yet, even, like, once, twice tonight,

Words which are both adverbs and adjectives

Early, late, near, far, high, low, daily, fine and well,

They are adverbs as you know, but adjectives as well

False opposites

“Early” and “lately”

“Hardly” and “easy”

“Highly” and “low”

“Nearly” and “far”.

These pairs of words

Are not opposite, really,

Well, even though they just look like they are.

“Lately” means “recently”,

“Highly” means “super”,

“Nearly” means “almost”,

“Hardly” means “nil”,

Well, almost zero, just like "hardly ever".

You know this rule now and you always will.
