    • That's what I thought. But are you 100%? Like a adverb describes a verb which in this case is 'looked', is the word 'down' describing it? Sorry it's got me frazzled.

    • If you want to get technical, the words "down" and "at" are prepositions. Since "down at her" tells you where he looked, it makes that phrase an ADVERB PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE.

    • 'It tells you where he looked' , thank you that's what I need to hear so I clicked for me lmao! ;)

  • No, the verb is 'looks'; 'down' I believe is a preposition. A verb is a 'doing word'

  • Looked is the verb. Down is just a descriptor.

    • Yes I know looked is the verb as verbs are doing words but 'down' what is it? Descriptor isn't the correct name for it.

    • It's called an adverb. They modify verbs, adjectives and other words.
