Hi all, I was reviewing an exercise with class today and 2 sentences stumped me. Honestly, I don't think I am explaining adverb phrases very well because some of the time I don't quite understand why the book says that a certain phrase is an adverb phrase. OK- I understand that adverbs (and adv phrases) answer the questions where, when, how, how much, and to what extent, but so many times I can't make the phrases answer one of those questions. Many times it's as if the phrases answers "why." So please help me out, because I was bewildered in class today, and I have to get a handle on this. In the following sentences: 1. His future wife moved to Paris to study about physics and chemistry. The book has "to Paris" marked as an adverb phrase and I get that- it answers where. Then it has "about physics and chemistry" marked as an adverb phrase. I don't understand why. I am assuming it modifies "to study" but I am also stumped as to what this infinitive is acting as in the sentence. Help! 2. Unfortunately, Pierre was killed in an accident on a Paris Street. The book has "in an accident" marked as an adverb- OK- it answers how and modifies "was killed." It has "on a Paris street" marked as an adjective phrase, and it plainly answers the question where. Is my book wrong? And if anyone can give me pointers on teaching adverb phrases, I will gladly listen! Thanks in advance! Trina in Alabama- 1st year language teacher still wet behind the ears!
