Lithuanian Adverbs

Learning the Lithuanian Adverbs displayed below is vital to the language. Lithuanian 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 Lithuanian many adverbs can be formed from adjectives, but also from nouns, pronouns and numerals.  

1. Forming from adjectives adding suffixes –(i)ai, -yn, -(i)uoju:

gražus (beautiful) – gražiai (beautifully), gražyn (making more beautifully), gražiuoju (doing in kind manner).

2. Forming from nouns, adjectives and nummerals adding prefix pa- and suffix –(i)ui:

eilė (line) – paeiliui (one after other, in the line); pavieniui (singly, individually).

3. There are other suffixes to form adverbs.
