In this chapter you will learn about the different adverbs in Dutch. These adverbs differ in their meaning and usage. When to use which adverb, will be described in detail in the subchapters.
The Dutch adverbs are words that give more information about the word they are connected to. The adverbs are able to alter verbs, adjectives, clauses, sentences and other adverbs.
The Dutch language has 7 categories of adverbs:
The adverbs are mostly placed as closely after the finite verb as possible, but if you want to emphasize the adverb, you can start the sentence with that particular adverb.
When you use more than one adverb, the following sequence is most common in Dutch:
This means that adverbs of time come before adverbs of manner and place, but adverbs of manner come before adverbs of place.
An adverb of time gives you information about when something takes place.
An adverb of manner gives you information about the way in which something takes place.
Adverbs of place provide information about where something takes place.
Adverbs of quantity express the quantity of something.
An adverb of frequency provides information about how often something takes place.
Adverbs of degree tell you the extent or degree to which something is true.
Sentence adverbs give information about a complete sentence.
Have a look at the subchapters for a more detailed explanation.
