Adverbs (les adverbs)
How are the adverbs stemming from adjectives formed?

1. Most of these adverbs are formed by adding "-ment" to the feminine form of corresponding adjective.
f.e. actuel-actuelle - actuellement
2. If the masculine form of the adjective ends in a vowel, the ending "-ment" is added to its masculine form.
f.e. absolu-absolue - absolument
3. Some adjectives change the "-e" of the feminine form to "-é" before adding "-ment" to form the adverb.
f.e. aveugle-aveugle - aveuglément
4. Adjectives ending in "-ent" become adverbs in "-emment", adjectives ending in "-ant" become adverbs in "-amment". Both "-emment" and "-amment" are pronounced.
f.e. apparent - apparemment
constant - constamment
5. Some adverbs have irregular stems.
bref-brève - brièvement
6. Some adverbs ending in "-ment" do not have a corresponding adjective.
f.e. nottamment
7. Some adverbs are completely irregular.
f.e. bon, bonne - bien
