Edition 8: Adverbs

Adverbs (kri-yaa-wi-she-hsha-tne) tell us more information about verbs. For example,

Mary went to a movie yesterday Mary kaa-la si-ne-maa-laa ge-lee ho-tvee
Your boods are here tvu-ze pu-stva-ka ye-the aa-he
Take this medicine twice a day he au-hsha-dha dvi-wa-saa-tvoo-na dvo-na-dvaa ghyaa-we
The hare runs fast (swiftly) sa-saa tvu-ru-tvu-ru pa-hla-tvo

In the above sentences the words kaa-la (yesterday), ye-the (here), dvo-na-dvaa (twice) and tvu-ru-tvu-ru
(fast or swiftly) express or give more information about verbs in the sentence. These words tell us as when,where , how or how many times or how frequently the action has taken place or has occurred.
