Define Adverb Meaning

Sadly, adverbs are no longer commonly used in everyday speech and perhaps even in writing; they are increasingly being replaced by adjectives. See the examples for clarification.

Remember that adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Adjectives modify nouns.

Incorrect usage with adjectives:
Incorrect: I did good on that competition today.
Incorrect: I did bad on that test.
Incorrect: My computer can download files fast!
Incorrect: My computer works perfect.

Correct usage with adverbs:
Correct: I did well on that competition today.
Correct: I did badly on that test.
Correct: My computer can download files quickly!
Correct: My computer works perfectly.

Super (as An Adverb)
A word which has replaced the longstanding, commonly used adverb "very". It has also replaced the use of stronger adjectives, but this would require being more well-read and that's simply not possible for most smartphone-addicted automata in 2020. This fad has been growing exponentially since around 2015.

Commonly used by anyone who is trying to sound trendy, but comes off sounding uneducated, cringeworthy and just plain embarrassing. It is the height of poor vocabulary.

Examples of super (as an adverb)

I'm super excited! (elated) I'm super tired! (exhausted) I'm super happy! (delighted) The guy was super slow! (sluggish) It was super boring! (monotonous) I'm super confused! (bewildered) The car was super fast! (rapid) My room is super small (tiny) The lunch was super expensive! (extortionate) The class was super interesting! (fascinating)

The "more-less" Adverb
To avoid the awkward construct of prefixing adverbs with "more", such as more quickly, or more easily, simply remove the "more" and instead use the phrase "easierly", or "quickerly". Does not apply in all cases, such as in more carefully ("carefullyier"? - nah). But, saves time and space and better than not using the adverbial form of a word at all.

The "more-less" adverb. E.g., "You'll get there quickerly if you take the back road.".
