Catalan Adverbs

Learning the Catalan Adverbs is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you practice the subject, the closer you get to mastering the Catalan language. But first we need to know what the role of Adverbs is in the structure of the grammar in Catalan.

Catalan adverbs are part of speech. Generally they're words that modify any part of language other than a noun. Adverbs can modify verbs, adjectives (including numbers), clauses, sentences and other adverbs.

Grammar Tips:

While in English adverbs are usually formed by adding (-ly) to adjectives. In Catalan many adverbs are formed from adjectives, simply by adding the suffix -ment to the singular feminine form of adjectives. Examples:

Lent (slow) becomes lentament (slowly).

Perfecte (perfect) becomes perfectament (perfectly).

However that’s not always the case. Some words are adverbs by nature. For example:

Ara (now), prou (enough), and aviat (soon) are all Catalan adverbs.


Here are some examples:
