Adverbial Phrases


Las oraciones en el idioma ingl茅s pueden ser enriquecidas haciendo uso de las frases adverbiales para agregar informaci贸n de lo que quieres expresar.

驴Qu茅 son las frases adverbiales?

Las frases adverbiales son un conjunto de dos o m谩s palabras que funcionan como un adverbio. Por su parte, recordar谩s que los adverbios son elementos gramaticales para modificar verbos, adjetivos, otros adverbios u oraciones enteras. Veamos algunos primeros ejemplos:

  • The sculptor did exceptionally well on his art exhibition.
  • She didn't want to be too anxious for the meeting, so she drank coffee earlier in the morning.

Tenemos que diferenciar entre tres tipos de frases adverbiales diferentes:

Frases adverbiales de grado

Las frases adverbiales de grado indican la intensidad de una acci贸n. Puedes utilizar palabras como:

  • Highly
  • Very
  • Barely
  • Quickly
  • Pretty
  • Almost
  • Perfectly

Un ejemplo de este tipo de frase adverbial podr铆a ser: She hand-drew the Christmas tree very meticulously**.

Frases adverbiales modificadoras

Las frases adverbiales modificadoras dan informaci贸n extra en una oraci贸n. El significado de dicha oraci贸n podr谩 estar completo y comprenderse completamente sin necesidad de este agregado.

Veamos un ejemplo de este tipo de frase adverbial: Now we just have to make sure we finish our proposal before the meeting. La oraci贸n podr铆a ser simplemente Now we just have to make sure we finish our proposal y su significado estar铆a correcto.

Frases adverbiales complementarias

Las frases adverbiales complementarias, a diferencia de las modificadoras, agregan informaci贸n necesaria para completar una oraci贸n. La misma no tendr铆a el mismo significado sin este agregado.

Tomemos un ejemplo visto en el roleplay Let's Work Together With Commands de la clase pasada: We'll be presenting our ideas separately from the other departments, right?

En este caso, la oraci贸n no se comprender铆a sin la frase adverbial.


Las frases adverbiales agregan vocabulario a tus oraciones para llevarlas a otro nivel. Ya sea indicando intensidad, agregando informaci贸n o modificando por completo el significado. Utiliza este recurso para complementar tus oraciones y profundizar tu nivel de ingl茅s.

ADVERBIAL PHRASE (AF) are two or more words combined that serve to modify verbs, adjectives, other adverbs and sentences, as adverbs.
We give extra information about the situation through an AF.
There are three types AF (in conjunction with other words to create an adverbial phrase) :

  • Degree AF: intensity (highly, very, barely, quickly, pretty, slight, scarcely, almost, perfectly, etc)

  • Modifier AF: additional information not fundamental.

  • Complement AF: prepositional phrases add necessary information.
