Adverbs in dialogue When we speak we can say things in many different ways.   When writing stories, we need to show how the  different characters speak.  The word “said” doesn’t tell us very much about how the sentence is spoken. By changing  the verb said we can add more detail, for example: “I’m going out,” said Rebecca. Or “I’m going out!” exclaimed Rebecca. We can give even more detail by describing the verb (e.g. said, exclaimed, shouted, answered etc).  To do this we use  an adverb in our sentence, for example: “I’m going out!” exclaimed Rebecca angrily.  Many adverbs end in ly.  How many can you think of?   Can you add adverbs to the following sentences to give more detail and to make them more exciting? Try to use a  different adverb for each sentence.   1. “There’s no milk left in the fridge,” said Amit ___________. 2. “How do you make fairy cakes?” asked Susan ___________.
