How to Use "Slow" with Example Sentences
Slow in a sentence
As we will see, adverbs often tell when, where, why, or under what conditions something happens or happened. Adverbs frequently end in -ly ; however, many words and phrases not ending in -ly serve an adverbial function and an -ly ending is not a guarantee that a word is an adverb. The words lovely, lonely, motherly, friendly, neighborly , for instance, are adjectives: That lovely woman lives in a friendly neighborhood. If a group of words containing a subject and verb acts as an adverb modifying the verb of a sentence , it is called an Adverb Clause :. When a group of words not containing a subject and verb acts as an adverb, it is called an adverbial phrase.
Some commentators claim that careful writers avoid the adverb slow , in spite of the fact that it has had over four centuries of usage. Slow is almost always used with verbs that denote movement or action, and it regularly follows the verb it modifies. Labor Slowly is used after verbs where slow might also be used burn slow or slowly and after verbs where slow would be unidiomatic.
