Adverbs are one of the nine parts of speech in the English language.
Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs.
Many adverbs end with -ly.
Adverbs usually modify verbs (hence the term). For example, perform quickly (the adverb quickly modifies the verb perform).
Adverbs can modify adjectives. For example, often funny (the adverb often modifies the adjective funny).
Adverbs can modify other adverbs. For example, too quickly (the adverb too modifies the adverb quickly).
