ESL 102R Week Three Part Two: Adverbs and Adverb Clauses A Common Mistake with Adverbs and Adjectives Like adjectives, adverbs add details to your sentences. However, people  often   mistakenly  use an  adjective instead of an adverb after a verb. Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, and express frequency or time. Correct the following sentences :   1. Sam needs a haircut bad.      2. I laugh too loud when I’m embarrassed.      3. You might have won the race if you hadn’t run so slow at the beginning.      4. She opened the door careful.      5. I did bad on the exam.
