Adverbs of the manner explain how some action took place. They give an answer to the question; kako? (How?)
There are two ways of formation of adverbs of manner:
1. From the positive, comparation or superlative form of descriptive adjectives: blago, brže, najbrže, teže, najteže.
Dijete se igra veselo. - The child is playing happy. (In what way the child is playing?)
Veselo dijete se igra. - The happy child is playing. (How child is playing?)
The adverbs of manner differ from adjectives in singular of neuter gender. In this form adjectives respond to the question kakvo? (In what way?), and adverbs respond to the question kako? (How?).
2. From the possessive adjective with endings in -ski
Govorimo hrvatski. - We speak Croatian. (How?) - adverb
Naš jezik je hrvatski. - Our language is Croatian. (Which one?) - adjective
In the following table there is a list of adverbs with the sentence example.
|tako||Tako ja to radim.||I do it like that.|
|ovako||Ovako više ne može.||We cant continue this way.|
|neprimjetno||Uvijek dođe neprimjetno.||He always come imperceptible.|
|loše||Loše se osječam.||I feel bad.|
|nikako||Ne mogu ga nikako pronaći.||There is no way to find it.|
|svakako||Svakako se savjetuj s njima.||Be sure to consult it with them.|
|slučajno||Sučajno sam je zaboravila.||I forgot it accidentally.|
|brzo||Brzo je došla.||She came quickly.|
|dobro||Ne osječam se dobro.||I dont feel good.|

Hello everbody, I am an experienced and teaching-passionate language professional offering tailor-made Croatian (all levels), ... General English (Elementary, Beginner's, Intermediate & Upper-intermediate level) and Russian (Elementary & Intermediate level) Conversation lessons as well as Business English. The lessons are structured ccording to student's needs with a variety of interesting topics. A range of different teaching materials is used. I tend to apply mostly visual aids as, according to my experience, they help students most in memorising new words and language structures. During the lessons we are focusing on further development of communication skills but we are also exploring vocabulary, grammar and culture. We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable. As an open and friendly person with an international family and experience of life in other countries, I enjoy meeting people of other cultures. I would be happy to get a chance to help people all over the world to learn the languages I teach. Perhaps you as well? Welcome! Dobro došli! Добро пожаловать! Welkom! Read more
