Galician Adverbs

Learning the Galician Adverbs displayed below is vital to the language. Galician 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 Galician many adverbs are formed from adjectives, simply by adding the suffix -mente to the singular feminine form of adjectives. Examples:

Lento (slow) becomes lentamente (slowly)

Perfecto (perfect) becomes perfectamente (perfectly)

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

Agora (now), verdade (really), and pronto (soon) are all Galician adverbs.


Here are some examples:
