Adverbials are words that we use to give more information about a verb. They can be one word (angrily, here) or phrases (at home, in a few hours) and often say how, where, when or how often something happens or is done, though they can also have other uses.

Hello Kisa Batool,
The sentence can be interpreted in several ways but I would say that 'much' here is a pronoun which is the object of the verb 'do'.
You can see a similar example on this page under 'pronoun, noun':

I'm not quite sure the difference between these two sentences.
He spoke angrily.
He angrily spoke.
Can somebody teache me?

Hi Rafaela1
Adverbials of manner like 'angrily' ( almost always come after the verb and not before. Putting one before the verb is not exactly wrong, but it's so unusual that it would sound strange for you to use it in a normal situation.
If you were writing a poem -- you've shared many very nice poems here on LearnEnglish and we are grateful! -- then it could be appropriate, but otherwise I'd recommend you use the first word order.

Thank you for your clear explanation, Kirk!
I like poems, BTW!

which one is correct?
part of speech together?

Hello amirfd
The first one is correct. The words 'closer', the comparative form of the adjective 'close', and the adverb 'together' are collocates here -- see number 5 on .

Thanks a lot.

Is it okay to say "They are ill from yesterday" to mean "They have been ill since yesterday"?

What are the differential usages of 'for' in this particular sense?


Hello Adya's
That sounds strange to me. Perhaps in some varieties of English or in some specific situation people would say it, but I don't think I ever would.
I'm sorry, but I don't understand your question about 'for' -- I don't see the word 'for' in the phrases you ask about.

I'm sorry. I meant 'from' not 'for'. I wanted to ask you for more information on the use of 'from' in that particular sense.
