Summary/Abstract: The adverbs of the adjective origin are being analyzed in this Paper. The starting point are different theories that explain the origin of that type of adjectives. The analysis itself divides the adjectival adverbs into two groups. The first group is made up of those made through adverbialization by transition of adjectives into adverbs, i.e. by “freezing” of a certain case form of the adjective. In that process, not only a certain morphological form is being petrified, but the semantics of the words is being changed too. Such adverbialized adverbs are being divided into two parts: the ones made by a simple and complex adverbialization. The second group is made up of adverbs made morphologically i.e. most often when the adverbialized forms have already become a usual model according to which adverbs are being formed (so that the former adjectival suffix became a formation suffix), or by adding of other affixes.
