Adjectives and Adverbs II

We use the adjective good with nouns.
“The movie we watched on Saturday was good.” Movie is a noun.

The adverb form is well.
“David Beckham plays soccer well.” Play is a verb.

Sometimes we use well as an adjective when we talk about our heath.

A: “How are you today?”
B: “I’m well thanks.”

“My Uncle is not well, he has been in the hospital for the last 3 days with stomach pain.”

More examples of words that are both adjectives and adverbs:
Fast – “Tom is a fast runner.” Tom is a noun
Fast – “Tom runs quite fast.” Run is a verb

Hard – “Basketball is hard.” Basketball is a noun (the adj. hard = difficult)
Hard – “I want to improve my jump shot so I practice hard every day.” Practice is a verb (the adj. hard = really try)

Late – “Scott was late for work this morning.” Scott is a noun
Late – “Scott woke up late this morning, his alarm didn’t go off.” Woke up is a phrasal verb (past tense)
