Verb followed by adverb

Post by jilang » Sun Oct 28, 2007 1:05 am

How can I get a structure of a verb and an adverb as something like: Verb+Adverb where the adverb is placed after the verb? For example, to say "walk slowly" I could say "ban7 ban7 kiann5" but how can I get something like this structure in Mandarin "zou de man"?

When you also describe the adverb.
For example:
walk very slowly: kiaNN5 cin1 ban7
walk too slowly: kiaNN5 siuNN1 ban7
walk more slowly: kiaNN5 kha4 ban7
