Spanish adjectives may be found before or after the nouns they modify, depending on various factors. Generally speaking, descriptive adjectives follow nouns, while limiting adjectives precede nouns.
An adjective is a word that describes a noun: its shape, color size, etc. Spanish adjectives are very different from English adjectives, for two reasons.
An adverb is an invariable word that modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. Adverbs can provide additional information about manner, quantity, frequency, time, or place – they explain when, how, where, how often, or to what degree something is done.
Adverbs of frequency express how often the action of a verb occurs.
Adverbs of manner express how the action of a verb occurs. In English, the vast majority of adverbs of manner end in -ly, whereas in Spanish, they mostly end in –mente.
