Many words in English function both as adjectives and adverbs without a change in form. But it is not the same in Ukrainian. To avoid the confusion, learn more about прикметники та прислівники – adjectives and adverbs of the same stem in Ukrainian language.
In Ukrainian, many adverbs are formed from adjectives. To form an adverb, replace the ending of the adjective (its last two letters in masculine form – usually -ий) with the –о ending:
гарний (adj.) – гарно (adv.)
Some adverbs are formed with the prefix по- added to an adjective or possesive pronoun. Adjectival endings are replaced with suffixes -и or -ому, -єму.
