An adverb is a word that qualifies a verb, an adjective, another adverb and a preposition.
Anne eats fast.
In this sentence, the word fast is an adverb because it qualifies the verb eats.
She is quite an intelligent girl.
In this sentence, the word quite is an adverb because it qualifies the adjective intelligent.
The ship has sailed right round the world.
In this sentence, the word right is an adverb because it qualifies the preposition round.
An adverb can qualify not only the individual words, but an entire assertive sentence. In such case, it must come first in the sentence.
Unfortunately, the thief was not caught.
Evidently, you were much distressed at the news.
Certainly, he is wrong.
As a general rule, adverbs do no qualify nouns or pronouns. But an adverb qualifies a noun or pronoun in such a sentence; as:
Even torture could not break his spirit. (Qualifying Noun)
Only you can tell us the facts. (Qualifying Pronoun)
