Heavy Construction

The Allen and Greenough is still under construction; so some links may not work quite the way you would expect.


Adverbs are used to modify Verbs, Adjectives, and other Adverbs.

a. A Demonstrative or Relative adverb is often equivalent to the corresponding Pronoun with a preposition (see §308. g): -

b. The participles dictum and factum, when used as nouns, are regularly modified by adverbs rather than by adjectives; so occasionally other perfect participles: -

c. A noun is sometimes used as an adjective, and may then be modified by an adverb: -

NOTE: Very rarely adverbs are used with nouns which have no adjective force but which contain a verbal idea: -

d. A few adverbs appear to be used like adjectives. Such are obviam, palam, sometimes contra, and occasionally others: -

NOTE: In some cases one can hardly say whether the adverb is treated as an adjective modifying the noun, or the noun modified is treated as an adjective (as in c above).

For propius, pridie, palam, and other adverbs used as prepositions, see §432.
