That's just modal adverbs! *Usual* adverbs are like
adjectives that refer to verbs instead of nouns. In French,
most adverbs end in -(e/am)ment, in English usually in -ly
and German does not make a difference between adjectives
and adverbs, though adverbs are not inflected for case,
gender and number as adjectives are.

Add: How would I inflect adverbs for case? Ayeri does that,
at least I try to but I always get into trouble, since
adverbs refer to verbs not to nouns.
