    1)Why do we use adverbials?

    A)We use adverbs to give more information about the verb. We use adverbials of manner to say how something happens or how something is done:-The children were playing happily.
    -He was driving as fast as possible.

    B)We use adverbials of place to say where something happens:

    -I saw himthere.
    -We met in London.

    C)We use adverbials of time to say when or how often something happens:

    -They start work at six thirty.
    -They usually go to work by bus.

    D)We use adverbials of probability to show how certain we are about something.

    -Perhaps the weather will be fine.
    -He iscertainlycoming to the party.
    2)How we make adverbials:
    -An adverbial can be an adverb:
    -He spokeangrily.
    -They live here.
    -We will be back soon.

    -or an adverb with a quantifier:

    -He spoke really angrily.
    -They livejust here.
    -We will go quite soon.
    -We will goas soon as possible.

    -or a phrase with a preposition:

    -He spokein an angry voice.
    -They livein London.
    -We will goin a few minutes.

    3)Where do adverbials go in a sentence?

    -We normally put adverbials after the verb:

    -He spoke angrily.
    -They live just here.
    -We will go in a few minutes.
    -or after the object or complement:

    -He opened the door quietly.
    -She left the money on the table.
    -We saw our friendslast night.
    -You are looking tired tonight.

    -But adverbials of frequency (how often) usually come in front of the main verb:

    -We usually spent our holidays with our grandparents.
    -I have never seen William at work.

    -But if we want to emphasise an adverbial we can put it at the beginning of a clause:

    -Last night we saw our friends.
    -In a few minutes we will go.
    -Very quietly he opened the door.

    -If we want to emphasise an adverb of manner we can put it in front of the main verb:

    -He quietlyopened the door.
    -She had carefully put the glass on the shelf.
