Marathi Adverbs

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

Marathi 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 Marathi adverbs can be formed different ways. Some of the are formed by repeating the word or by adding (-ch).

halu (slow) becomes haluch/haluhalu (slowly)

yogya (perfect) becomes yogya (perfectly)

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

aatta (now), khara/kharach(really), and lavakar (soon) are all Marathi adverbs.


Here are some examples:
