Normally, adverbs do not change form, but some have comparative and superlative forms. They are usually short adverbs and so they normally have comparative and superlative forms with -er and -est.

Some of the most common comparative and superlative adverbs are:

Adverb Comparative Superlative
hard harder hardest
fast faster fastest
late later latest

With LY adverbs (adverbs formed from adjectives by adding -ly to the end) we form the comparative and superlative forms with more and most.

Adverb Comparative Superlative
quietly more quietly most quietly
slowly more slowly most slowly
seriously more seriously most seriously

Some adverbs have irregular comparative forms.
