What is an adverbial?

Adverbials are used like adverbs. They are words or phrases that add more information to a verb, and explain how, when or where something happened.

Adverbial examples

  • Later, we ate our lunch with our friends.
  • Just then, we heard a noise.
  • I like to walk through the forest occasionally.
  • It’ll be my birthday in September.

National Curriculum English programme of study links
