Adverb used to describe the meaning of any parts of speech except noun or pronoun. An adverb therefore can say something about a verb, a adjective or an adverb.

An adverb cannot modify an Interjection. An interjection is not truly a word to participate in the construction of a sentence. It is simply a sound to express some feelings or emotions not related to any other word in the sentence. It is merely an exclamatory sound.

Ex: I caned him mainly because he stole my pen.

Why caned? Because he stole my pen. Only for this reason? No, No, not for that only. I consider it a great offence to steal. It shocked me, so I caned. The word mainly expounds all these reasons contained in the connective because. because is a joining word (= conjunction) between i caned him and he stole my pen. mainly points to because. The word mainly is an adverb.

Describe verb: He walks slowly.

Describe adjective: This is a very beautiful picture.

Describe adverb: This can be done more easily.

Describe preposition: I arrived long before the time.

Describe conjunction: I hate him simply because he is a lier.

Describe sentence: Unfortunately i failed.
