Adverbs

Adverbs are words that say something about the time, place, manner, or degree regarding a verb, adjective, or another adverb. Some words are adverbial by nature, like now, very, and too in English; some are created from other sorts of word by adding -e to the root, much like those created by adding -ly in English:

Nu, irez vivar felice sempre poste o me devos fal-pedfrapar la denti ec vua boko. Now, go live happily ever after or I’ll have to dropkick the teeth out of your mouth.
« He! Vu dormez heme. » « Pro quo? On pagas me dormar hike. » “Hey! You count sheep at home.” “Why? I get paid to count ‘em here.”
Vua matro esas hike interne, Karras. Plezus a vu lasar komunikajo? Me certigos ke el recevez olu. Your mother’s in here, Karras. Would you like to leave a message? I’ll see that she gets it.
Quala moblaro di manjochambro definas me kom personon? What kind of dining set defines me as a person?
Me volas ke vu frapez me maxim forte posible. I want you to hit me as hard as you can.
Experto esas lu qua savas sempre multe pri sempre poke. An expert is one who knows more and more about less and less.
Vu esas quale la furtisto qua ne regretas mem minime ke lu furtis, ma multege regretas ke lu iros a karcero. You’re like the thief who isn’t the least bit sorry he stole, but is terribly, terribly sorry he’s going to jail.
