ADV: adverb

Definition

Adverbs are words that typically modify verbs for such categories as time, place, direction or manner. They may also modify adjectives and other adverbs, as in velmi významně  “very significantly” or prokazatelně chybný  “provably wrong”.

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. Pronominal adverbs also get the ADV part-of-speech tag but they are differentiated by additional features.

In accord with the UD approach, adverbial ordinal numerals (poprvé, posedmé, postopadesáté)  are tagged ADV, although the traditional grammar classifies them as numerals. The same holds for multiplicative numerals (jednou, sedmkrát, stopadesátkrát). 

Note that Czech transgressives (also called adverbial participles or converbs) are tagged VERB, not ADV.
