adverbs and adjectives
he wore his light blue shirt for party
why light is an adverb ?
An adverb can modifiy a verb and an adjective as well.
Here, 'blue' is the adjective that modifies the shirt. 'light' modifies the adjective 'blue' and hence 'light' is an adverb.
Note: Please do not confuse this with cumulative adjectives.
E.g. He wore is old blue shirt for party.
'old blue' - cumulative adjectives. Because 'old' does not qualify 'blue'. 'old' and 'blue' both qualify the shirt.
