While in English adverbs are usually formed by adding (-ly) to adjectives. In Georgian many adverbs are formed from adjectives, simply by adding the suffix –ad, -a to the singular feminine form of adjectives.

Examples:

  • neli (slow) becomes nela (slowly)
  • srulyofili (perfect) becomes srulyofilad (perfectly)

However that’s not always the case. Some words are adverbs by nature.

For example:

  • axla (now), 
  • namdvili - namdvilad (really),
  • and male (soon)

are all Georgian adverbs.
