The history of Tatar adverb formation, as compared to the Russian language, is described in this paper for the first time. It provides the basis for systemic specifications of this part of speech in the modern Tatar literary language. The authors emphasize the need for comparative studies of adverbs, adjectives and gerunds, with the aim to improve their acquisition and describe the difficulties that learners experience in producing utterances containing adverbs.
