Adverbs

Using adverbs to show completeness or size

  • You can use adverbs to indicate how complete something (a verb, adjective, or another adverb) is: 

Around 100%: fully, wholly, totally, completely, thoroughly, utterly, entirely 

Close to 100%: almost, very, virtually 

Not very: partially, somewhat 

  • You can also use adverbs to show the size of what a verb, adjective or another adverb expresses:

Enormously: They have benefited enormously from…

Extremely: … was extremely successful.
