An adverb is similar to a verb, but differs in the following:
- an adverb has only a left argument (a verb is ambivalent, and has either a right argument or both a left and a right argument)
- an adverb can apply to nouns or verbs (a verb applies only to nouns)
- an adverb typically has a verb as its result (a verb always has a noun result)
The verb result of an adverb is referred to as a derived verb.
The primitive / is an adverb. Its result is a new verb. If the monadic case of the derived verb is used, then the / is referred to as insert. If the dyadic case of the derived verb is used, then the / is referred to as table.
