What is the difference between an adjective and an adverb?

Adjectives and adverbs are both parts of speech that modify or describe other words, but they have distinct functions. Adjectives typically modify nouns or pronouns, providing information about their qualities, characteristics, or attributes. On the other hand, adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, or other adverbs, conveying information about how, when, where, or to what extent an action or quality is expressed. While adjectives add descriptive details to nouns, adverbs enhance the meaning of verbs or other modifiers by answering questions like “how,” “when,” “where,” or “to what degree.”
