Adverb question


Recommended Posts

Yes, it should...falls to what extent? often...we think of "time telling" words as adverbs.


The sentence from Easy Grammar is:


That small child often falls down on his roller skates.


Down is listed as an adverb in the sentence, but should often also be labeled an adverb in the example?




For clarity:


adj adj simpleSub adv verb adv (prep adj object) ---- prep phrase may be labeled as an adverb for answering How?; his could be called a posessive pronoun as and adj. and roller skates could be called obj of preposition
