Verbs & adverbs

What are verbs ?


Verbs are action words -
e.g. eat, sleep, talk, walk, do, buy are all verbs

What are adverbs?

Adverbs are words that tell us more about verbs....they add information to the verb.
(A verb is a 'doing' word or a 'being' word, e.g. 'walk', 'feel')
Using adverbs makes your sentences more interesting.
Any verb you use can have an adverb added.
The girl smiled nervously.
The boy grinned sheepishly.
The light shone feebly.
We use adverbs:
  • to say how something happens
    'The family walk (how?) quickly.'
  • to say where or when something happens
    'I met him (when?) yesterday.'
  • to say how often something happens
    'She gets the bus (how often?) daily.'
  • to make the meaning of an adjective, adverb or verb stronger or weaker
    'Dave eats (degree?) more slowly than his wife.'
Adverbs are often created from adjectives (describing words that tell you more about nouns) by adding 'ly' to the end of the adjective.
e.g. slow becomes slowly
'Joe is a slow person. He walks slowly.'
Certain words change when they become adverbs. If an adjective ends in a 'y' you need to change the 'y' to an 'i' before adding 'ly'.
Happy becomes happily
Heavy becomes heavily

Lunar Eclipse 2011


On the night of 15th June 2011 India witnessed longest and darkest lunar eclipse of the century.This was also the darkest lunar Eclipse in almost 100 years as the centres of the sun,the Earth and the moon was nearly on one straight line.



Moon's bright white glow turned crimson brick red when it delved into the dark centre of the Earth's shadow during the centuries longest and darkest lunar eclipse.The full moon appeared much dimmer than usual,but sunlight passing throught the Earth's atmosphere gave the lunar surface a deep reddish hue.
Image :The moon passes right to left through the Earth's shadow
This was the century's longest and darkest total lunar eclipse as the Moon immersed deeply inside the umbral (darker) shadow of the Earth, Nehru Planetarium Director N Rathnasree told PTI.
Lunar Eclipse


The total phase of the eclipse lasted 100 minutes. The last eclipse to exceed this duration was in July 2000. The next such eclipse will only take place in 2141. The penumbral lunar eclipse began at 22:54:34 IST and ended at 04:30:45 IST, she said. The total lunar eclipse began at 00:52:30 IST and ended at 02:32:42 IST. While the partial eclipse began at 23:52:56 IST and ended at 03:32:15 IST. As the earth came in between the sun and the moon, its shadow first began sweeping across the moon blocking out much of its bright light and as the shadow descended gently, the moon's face turned red. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth in course of its orbit around the Sun, comes between the Moon and Sun in such a way that Moon is hidden in the shadow cast by Earth. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned in a straight line, C B Devgun from Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators (SPACE) said.
