the underlined words are an example of
the words, “I’m done.” or “I have a lot on my plate.
The first phrase is an example of an adverb. Adverbs give us a little more information than just a word and a sentence. They show us something in the way that the word “I’m” does. Like most adverbs, the word “done” is an adverb, but it doesn’t show what it’s doing.
Adverbs are a bit of a paradox. They are often useful in conjunctive sentences. They are also really helpful in negation. It is often seen as a bit of a hack that people use to make “I’m not sure” sound less self-important. However, the word Im is one of the most self-assured adverbs there is. It shows you what you cant do. Im not going to read this book, Im going to do it.
When a verb is conjugated with an adverb, it is usually not a good idea to use it as a verb. Adverbs are used when you are not sure what the sentence is going to be about. For example, if you saw a movie and thought it would be funny to read the book that was in the movie, you would have no trouble conjuring it using the word Im. But that’s not what Im doing here.
Im is an adverb. It can be used as a verb, but it is not a good idea to use it as one. I mean, you could say “I am not going to read this book, I am going to read it.” That would be a good one, but you shouldn’t use it that way.
A few years ago, we found ourselves in a situation where we were in the middle of writing some articles about how we had to use an adverb in a sentence. We were wondering if we should use an adverb or not. We had to use one, but were unsure about whether it was the right choice. We thought about it for a few seconds, and then decided that we would go with the adverb, since we could see the difference between the two.
This happened to us again. We were taking our students to a wedding and I was explaining the difference between an adverb and a pronoun. I was looking for my students to tell me when they saw the adverb, but they weren’t sure whether it was the right choice. After a few seconds, I realized that the difference was that the students couldn’t tell me when they saw the adverb, so they had to use the pronoun.

A similar situation arose during the first half of yesterday’s class. A little while before class, we realized that while the students in our class had an understanding of the difference between an adjective and an adverb, they werent sure whether ‘to see’ meant the same as ‘to see’ or ‘to look at’. After a few more seconds, we realized that the students knew that ‘to see’ meant ‘to look at’, so they had to use the adverb.
For the same reason, that little slip of a situation that we covered the last time we did this exercise, is something we can all use. For the same reason, that little slip of a situation that we covered the last time we did this exercise, is something we can all use.
