Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...Which of the auxiliaries are tense auxiliaries? How are they used? CHAPTER LX CLASSES OF ADVERBS 1. CLASSIFICATION ACCORDING TO MEANING Point out the adverbs in the following sentences, and tell what each expresses: --1. Now came still evening on. 2. Ah! then and there was hurrying to and fro. 3.

(2) Adverbs that show where are adverbs of place; as, here, there, hither, thither, hence, thence, somewhere, yonder, above, below, tcp, down, away, off, far. The word there is not always an adverb of place. Sometimes it is used merely to introduce a sentence, in order that the verb may be placed before its subject. When it is used to introduce a sentence in this manner, it is called an expletive; as, --There expletive was a sound of revelry by night. There adverb of place groups of merry children played. (3) Adverbs that show how are adverbs of manner; as, well, ill, badly, slowly, quickly, clearly, together, so, thus. (4) Adverbs that show how much are adverbs of degree; as, very, much, little, only, almost, enough, quite, too, so, as.

Combinations of words used as single adverbs may be called adverbial phrases; as, again and again, at last, at length, by and by, by far, in and out, in vain, now and then, out and out, through and through, up and down.
