ADV: adverb



In Pomak there 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 játse húbbe (very well) or fazlá bóržo (more quickly).

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.


Note that there are words that may be traditionally called numerals in some languages but they are treated as adverbs in the universal tagging scheme. In particular, adverbial ordinal numerals are tagged as ADV.
