UWF WRITING LABRULES OF THUMB FOR ADJECTIVE AND ADVERB USE

From Real Good Grammar, Too

by Mamie Webb Hixon

Created by April Turner


Adjectives and adverbs

Adjectives and Adverbs

  • Use adjectives after sense verbs such as look, smell, taste, feel, or sound or after linking verbs (is, am, are, was, were and other forms of be): The steak tastes very good.

  • Most adverbs end in –ly; use adverbs after transitive and intransitive verbs/verbs of action: She submits her paperwork promptly.


Bad and badly

Bad and Badly

  • Bad is an adjective: I feel bad about the delay.

  • Badly is an adverb: It doesn't hurt so badly now.


Good and well

Good and Well

  • Good is an adjective: You look good in blue. You wear it well.

  • Well is an adverb: He gets along well with his co-workers.

  • Well is also an adjective when it is used to refer to health: I am not well today.


Real and really

Real and Really

  • Real is an adjective meaning "genuine"; really is an adverb: The admiral has real charm, so he is really charismatic.

  • The use of real as an adverb is colloquial or nonstandard: He writes real really well.


Sort of and kind of

Sort of and kind of

  • Sort of and kind of are often misused in written English by writers who actually mean rather or somewhat: Lannie was kind of rather saddened by the results of the test.
