Adverbs

Adverbs are uninflected words that describe how some action was done:

  • गजो मन्दं चरति
    gajo mandaṃ carati
    The elephant walks slowly.

We can change any adjective into an adverb by using it in its case 1 singular form:

  • मृदु → स मृदु भाषते।
    mṛdu → sa mṛdu bhāṣate.
    soft → He speaks softly.
