Adverbs and adverbial phrases

Adverbs are often formed from descriptive adjectives. In Polish, adverbs are generally used to provide information about the action (as opposed to adjectives, which provide information about the subject and objects), and answer the questions: kiedy ‘when’? gdzie ‘where’? and jak ‘how’? They describe the manner in which someone is doing, has done or will do some­ thing or how something is, has been or will be done.
