An Adverb of frequency is said to those adverbs whose property changes the meaning or qualifies the sentence by expressing the frequency of the action and how often it occurs in the sentence.
They are subdivided into two parts as definite and indefinite, respectively.
The definite adverbs express the specific amount of time of action when it happens, and the indefinite adverbs do not mention any specific time notation that when the action occurs.
The Definite adverbs include words such as ‘yearly, annually, weekly, monthly, daily, or hourly,’ which represents a specific amount of time. And the Indefinite adverbs include words such as ‘often, rarely, never, ever, always, sometimes’ respectively.
