Latvian Adverbs

Learning the Latvian Adverbs displayed below is vital to the language. Latvian 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 Latvian many adverbs are formed from adjectives, simply by removing the last consonant before adding the vowel (–i) to the masculine form of the adjective. Examples:

Lēns (slow) becomes lēni (slowly)

Perfekts (perfect) becomes perfekti (perfectly)

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

Šobrīd (now), patiešām (really) un drīz (soon) are all Latvian adverbs.


Here are some examples:
