Verbs and adverbs are both very important parts of English grammar. These are the most important parts of the Parts of speech. These two are so closely connected and different from each other.
Verb:- Verb is a part of speech which defines the work , action, state, or occurrence, and forming the main part of the predicate of a sentence, it is basically stating the work of the subject.
I eat rice.
( here eat is a work done by the subject, so eat is a verb)
She can sing classical songs.
Rima walks faster than others.
Tommy is watching TV.
She is folding the clothes.
Adverb:- Adverb is a part of speech which modifies the action, state or work of a verb, an adjective, another adverb or a sentence.
She sings sweetly.
( here sweetly modifies the singing the subject is doing, so here sweetly is an adverb) .
He finishes his work quickly.
She plays the flute beautifully.
Difference between verb and adverb:-
Verbs define an action, state or work,on the other hand an adverb modifies the action, state or work of a verb, an adjective, another adverb or a sentence.
Verbs can not modify adverbs, but adverbs can modify verbs.
Verbs don’t have any phrases at the end of words, but the adverb “ly” is added at the end of words.
Verbs are words, but adverbs can be words, phrases or clauses.
