Notes : Cara membentuk adverb of manner ( keterangan cara)

1. Umumnya adverb ini dibentuk dengan menambahkan akhiran “ ly” pada adjectivenya:

Adjective                Adverb                 Artinya



Perfect                Calmly



Perfectly              Dengan tenang

Dengan jujur

Dengan baik

Dengan sempurna

         Example: - He is a calm worker ( ia seorang pekerja yang tenang ) = adjective

                - He works calmly ( ia bekerja dengan tenang ) = adverb

2. Kata sifat yang berakhiran huruf “ y” maka huruf “y”diganti dengan “i” lalu ditambah dengan “ly”

              Adjective                Adverb                Artinya
BusyBusily            Dengan sibuknya
                  Easy                 Easily            Dengan mudah
                 Happy                Happily             Dengan bahagia.

Example: - He is a busy man ( adjective )

                - He works busily (adver)

3. Kata sifat yang berakhiran huruf “L” ditambah dengan ly, maka huruf “L”nya double

           BeautifulBeautifullyDengan cantiknya
           Careful              Carefully         Dengan hati-hati
         PeacefulPeacefullyDengan damai

Example: - She is beatiful (adjective)

                - She dancer beautifully (adverb)

Namun, ada beberapa kata sifat yang tidak bisa disusun seperti pola diatas. Yakni memiliki bentuk yang sama persisi dengan adverbnya, yang bisa berfungsi sebagai kata keterangan tanpa ditambah “ly”. Yaitu:

Adjective               Adverb              Artinya



Late                 Early



LateDengan lambat

Dengan cepat

Dengan keras

Dengan lambat

Cara menidentifikasi bentuk kata tersebut apabila disusun dalam suatu kalimat, berikut uraiannya:

-          apabila kata tersebut berada setelah kata kerja, itu berarti kata keterangan

ex: Tye runn fast

-          apabila kata tersebut berada setelah “to be” mka kata tersebut adalah kata sifat.

Ex: This test is hard to do

Ada beberapa kata kerja yang tidak boleh diikuti oleh kata keterangan yang berakhiran “ly”.

Misalnya: Look, become, get, taste, appear, grow, seem, soun, feel, tunr, smoll.

Sekelompaok kata kerja tersebut dinamakan Linking Verb / kata kerja penghubung yang bisa diikuti oleh kata sifat.

Ex : - Farida looks beautiful ( benar )

       - Farida looks beautifully ( salah )

Comparasion of Adverb (Perbandingan Kata Keterangan)

Setiap ketentuan yang berlaku dalam abjective berlaku pula dalam comparasion of adverb.

1. Adverb yang pendek, mendapat akhiran “er” untuk komparatif (tingkat lebih) dan mendapat akhiran “est” superlative (tingkat paling).

Ex : - This bus is as fast as than motorcycle ( adjective )

          Rudy works as fast as I do ( adverb )

         - This bus is not as fast as than one ( adjective )

            Rudy doesn’t work as fast as I do ( adverb )

         - This bus is the fastest one ( adjective )

            Rudy works the fastest among us ( adverb )

2. Adverbs yang lebih panjang mendapat awalan “more” untuk comparative dan mendapat awalan “most” untuk superlative.

Ex : - Rudy is as happy as I am

          Rudy works as happily as I do

        - Rudy is happier than I am

           Rudy works more happily than I do

        - Rudy is the happiest among us

          Rudy works the most happily in the office

3. Ketentuan mengenai tingkat perbandingan yang tak berurutan untuk adjective berlaku pula bagi adverb.

Ex : - This book is as good as yours

          He studies as well as I do

        - This book is better than yours

          He studies better than I do

        - This book is the best in the class
