Types of adverbs of time

1- Adverbs of definite time 

We should ask the subject about when the action is happening to find these kinds of adverbs of time. For instance; I am going to New York. If we ask when you will go, our answer may be “today”, “now”, “yesterday” etc. We can categorize all these answers within this group of adverbs because they answer the question “when”. Therefore, they are not adverbs of frequencies. They are also not the adverbs of durations.

Examples for Adverbs of Definite Time
Already We have already put actions in place
at .. o’clock She left the office at 6 pm.
At that moment At that moment I believed him.
Before Haven’t I met you before here?
Last year/month/etc. She knows that this is probably his last term.
In the afternoon/etc Late in the afternoon, the rescuers emerged.

Tonight But tonight we had a job to do.
Tomorrow I have a job interview tomorrow morning.
Yesterday Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House. 
Yet But it hasn’t happened yet.

2- Adverbs of duration

These types of adverbs show the length of actions. We learn about it by asking “how long”, “since when” and “up to what” questions.
