    Quick review: The comparison of adverbs and the position of adverbs in sentences

    English Grammar In Brief - A quick review là một tutorial gồm các bài viết ngắn gọn, nhiều ví dụ về các chủ đề chính trong tiếng Anh. Các bạn không nhất thiết phải đọc lần lượt hay toàn bộ tutorial này, chỉ cần thấy thiếu kiến thức về chủ đề nào là đọc chủ đề đó. Rất nhanh và dễ hiểu, dễ nhớ. Chúc các bạn học tốt ^o^

    There are three forms:
    - positive
    - comparative
    - superlative

    A - Comparison with -er/-est

    hard - harder - (the) hardest
    We use -er/-est with the following adverbs:
    1) all adverbs with one syllable

    fast faster fastest high higher highest 2) The adverb: early

    B - Comparison with more - most

    carefully - more carefully - (the) most carefully
    adverbs ending on -ly (not: early)
    C - Irregular adverbs

    well better best
    badly worse worst
    much more most
    little less least
    late later last
    far farther further farthest

    ATTENTION!
    In informal English some adverbs are used without -ly (e.g. cheap, loud, quick). There are two forms of comparison possible, depending on the form af the adverb:
    cheaply - more cheaply - most cheaply
    cheap - cheaper - cheapest

    The position of adverbs in sentences

    We can put adverbs in different positions in sentences. There are three main positions but also a lot of exceptions.
    In English we never put an adverb between the verb and the object.
    We often play handball. - CORRECT We play often handball. - WRONG

    The three main positions of adverbs in English sentences

    1) Adverb at the beginning of a sentence
    Unfortunately, we could not see Mount Snowdon.
    2) Adverb in the middle of a sentence
    The children often ride their bikes.
    3) Adverb at the end of a sentence
    Andy reads a comic every afternoon.
    More than one adverb at the end of a sentence

    If there are more adverbs at the end of a sentence, the word order is normally:
    Manner- Place - Time
    Peter sang the song happily in the bathroom yesterday evening.
