Adjectives and Adverbs

(bijvoegelijke naamwoorden en bijwoorden)

An adjective modifies a noun (zelfstandig naamwoord). It tells us something about the noun.

Slide 3 - Slide

Adjectives and Adverbs
1. Frank sings well. 
2. My brother drives carefully.
An Adverb (Bijwoord) can modify other words. It tells us for example how something happens, how often and in what manner. It can tell us something about an adjective, other adverb, verb or part of a sentence even! 

Slide 4 - Slide

Watch out!
1. My teachers are nice.
2. That car looks beautiful.
3. Haggis smells awful.

After linking verbs (koppelwerkwoorden) such as: to be , to seem , to feel + to look , to smell, to sound, to taste you do not use an adverb (bijwoord) but an adjective! 

Slide 5 - Slide

Linking verbs

Verbs that describe the noun. These verbs are not always used as linking verbs. Because they describe a noun an adjective is used.

The plant grew quickly.

to appear       to prove
to be                to remain
to become     to seem
to feel              to smell

An adverb can also tell us something about another adverb. 

1. Frank sings absolutely beautifully.
2. My brother drives really well.
