Adverbs that Modify Adjectives

Sometimes, adverbs are used to modify the meaning of an adjective. It is important to realize that they are not modifying the subject, which is a common misconception. For example, in the sentence, “He is a very smart man”, “very” is used to modify the adjective “smart”, which is used to describe the man. However, if you remove the word “smart,” you can see that “very” is not modifying the subject man. “He is a very man”.
