					Lama-lama bosen juga ya membahas adverbs, tetapi sayang jika tidak dibahas di blog
ini karena pengetahuan tentang adverb itu juga penting. Langsung saja kepokok bahasan
kita yaitu adverbs of degree. Dalam bahasa Indonesia Adverbs of Degree adalah kata
keterangan tingkat. Adverb ini menerangkan atau menunjukan sejauh mana sesuatu itu
terjadi, menerangkan intensitas suatu kata sifat dan juga adverb/kata keterangan. Jadi
adverbs of degree bisa menerangkan kata sifat/adjective, kata keterangan/adverb dan juga
kata kerja/verb.




Ada banyak adverbs of degree. Antara lain:

almost = hampir/nyaris

enough = cukup

too = terlalu/terlampau/kelewat/juga

very = sekali/teramat/sangat

just = hanya

hardly = hampir tidak

nearly = hampir/nyaris

extremely = teramat/secara ekstrim

quite = sangat/agaknya

scarcely = hampir tidak

completely = seluruhnya/secara utuh

dll

Posisi adverbs of degree

* Adverbs of degree diletakkan sebelum adjective, adverb, dan juga kata kerja

Contoh:

He had hardly begun.

I just asked.

His work is almost finished.



*Pengecualian pada enough, too, dan very

Enough

Enough ditempatkan setelah adjective dan adverb:

Contoh:

He didn't work hard enough.
Enough biasanya ditempatkan sebelum kata benda:

Kita sering menggunakan enough…for, khususnya untuk orang dan hal.

Very berarti sesuatu dilakukan sampai tingkat yang tinggi, biasanya faktual.

yang berbeda untuk meningkatkan kosa-kata anda kata-kata berikut dapat digunakan
menggantikan very. Absolutely, acutely, amply, astonishingly, awfully, certainly,
considerably, cruel, dearly, decidedly, deeply, eminently, emphatically, exaggeratedly,

incredibly, indispensably, largely, notably, noticeably, particularly, positively,
