Adjectives and adverbs in the Grande grammaire du français
- many adverbs are derived from adjectives, usually with a -ment suffix (facile ‘easy’ > facilement ‘easily’) but not always (juste > juste ‘just’)
- many adjectives may modify verbs without being inflected (voir clair ‘see clear’) with a manner or result interpretation.
- only adjectives may vary in gender and number
- only adverbs may occur between the auxiliary and the past participle (a clairement/*clair vu ‘has clearly seen’), or before the infinitive (*clair voir), with an integrated prosody.
