Spanish Tip - Spanish Adverbs Delante and Adelante


First question: What is an adverb? According to TheFreeDictionary.com, an adverb is:

1. The part of speech that modifies a verb, adjective, or other adverb.
(The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition copyright ©2000)

Both, "delante" and "adelante" are adverbs.

But when to use "delante"? And "adelante"?
The difference between both adverbs is that "adelante" implies movement, motion, and "delante" doesn't.

Let's see some examples:
  • Ana está delante de la casa.
    (Ana is in front of the house)

  • Note that the verb "está" implies position, location, so there is no movement. That's why we use here "delante (de)". In this case "delante" is followed by the preposition "de" --> "delante de", but it can also be found with other prepositions:

    - por delante = ahead of
    - hacia delante = forward

  • El hombre anda adelante.
    The man walks towards.

    But, did you notice that "hacia delante" = "adelante"?

Hope this helps!
