ADV: adverb


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 հավանաբար սխալ  “probably wrong” or շատ հազվադեպ  “very rarely”.

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

Note that verb forms such as transgressives (also called adverbial participles, e.g. տեսա գրելիս  “I saw him writing” or կարդալիս քնեց  “when reading he slept”) share properties and usage of adverbs and verbs. Note that Armenian transgressives are tagged VERB, not ADV.

Note that in Armenian some adverbs inflect for Degree. Second degree specified by adverb ավելի “more” e.g. ավելի արագ  “more quickly”. The third degree of adverbs in Armenian is constructed with the feature of Definite.
