ADV: adverb

Definition

Adverbs are words that typically modify verbs for such categories as time, place, direction or manner. They may also modify adjectives (as in clarament fals “clearly fake”), other adverbs (as in molt breument “very briefly”) or even nouns / pronouns (as in solament tu “only you”).

There is a closed subclass of pronominal adverbs that refer to circumstances in context, rather than naming them directly; similarly to pronouns, these can be categorized as interrogative, relative, demonstrative, etc. To conform to the UD guidelines, pronominal adverbs also get the ADV part-of-speech tag but they are differentiated by additional features (see pronominal type).
