Common Adverbs

There are two common suffixes involved with creating adverbs. There isn’t too much of a difference between them, so these kinds of adverbs neeed to be memorised.

-l/-ul/-ül


Among other things, -ul,-ül is used to turn adjectives into adverbs. Naturally front-voweled adjectives take the -ül ending, back-voweled -ul and those ending in vowels get -l.

It is also used to show the language someone speaks.

-n/-an/-en/-on

Front-voweled words take -en, back-voweled words take -an,-on and words ending in vowels take -n. This is done to adjectives.

Gyorsan - (Quickly) From gyors
Gyakran - (Frequently) From gyakor 
Csendesen - (Silently) From csend
Szépen - (Beautifully/Nicely) From szép
Nagyon - (Very) From nagy
Gazdagon - (Richly) From gazdag
Ritkán - (Rarely) From ritka

However gyakor is hardly used in practice.

There are some adjectives that can become adverbs from either ending. E.g. piszkos
