the adverb

The adverb, the fifth part of speech, modifies (qualifies or limits) verbs,
adjectives, or other adverbs. An adverb can answer any of these four
questions—Where? When? How? To what extent?
Adverbs modify verbs:
Henry swam brilliantly. (How did Henry swim?)
The train then came down the line. (When did the train come down
the line?)

The runner fell down. (Where did the runner fall?)

Adverbs modify adjectives:
The day was almost perfect. (To what extent was the day perfect?)
Some older people were quite happy with the club’s proposal. (How
happy were they?)
Adverbs modify adverbs:
Sonny, swallow your food very slowly. (How slowly should Sonny
swallow his food?)
The architect worked quite methodically. (How methodically did the
architect work?)
Though many adverbs end with -ly, these thirty-three adverbs below
do not.

again almost alone already also
always away even ever here
just later never not now
nowhere often perhaps quite rather
seldom so sometimes somewhat somewhere
soon then there today too
very yesterday yet

    Final Fantasy VII

    Squares initial foray into 3D technology with the Final Fantasy Franchise required 120 programmers and artists to develop, making it the most expensive video game ever developed at the time. However, Final Fantasy VIIs development costs were considerably small in comparison to the amount spent on the games huge advertising campaign. This included a promotion with Pepsi ads and big magazines such as Rolling Stone and Playboy as well as Marvel and DC comics and multiple TV advertisements. The game finally released in 1997 after its three month long marketing streak. Adjusted for inflation Square spent around$213 Millionon Final Fantasy VIIs development and marketing.
