The 10 Most Common ChatGPT Adverbs

They are crucial for enhancing the description of a particular action, but that doesn’t mean you have to insert adverbs here, there and everywhere! Then again, ChatGPT isn’t exactly known for its brevity.

Not only is ChatGPT a huge fan of adverbs, it has formed a special club of adverbs that it likes to get extra mileage out of!

Why? Some people theorize that this phenomenon occurs because the data it’s trained on reflects the same pattern i.e. humans in general stick with the same set of adverbs.

If you want your chatbot to demonstrate a little more diversity in its choice of words, consider banning it from using the most commonly used adverbs in ChatGPT-generated texts.

1. Comprehensively

ChatGPT is overflowing with information (it’s an informational tool at heart), and it makes no secret of this because it’s always announcing that it will explore a topic thoroughly, inclusively, and more often than not, comprehensively.

2. Increasingly

This is an immensely popular adverb in the real world, so we can cut ChatGPT some slack for using it as frequently as it does. And to be honest, is there a better word that describes the growing nature or prevalence of something? Probably not.

3. Surprisingly

I like seeing the adverb ‘surprisingly’ show up in AI-generated texts to add emphasis to the unexpected nature of a situation because it brings a nice change of tone—when ChatGPT generates a long-form response, it tends to adopt a more formal tone.

4. Vividly

This chatbot is really keen on invoking strong, vivid mental images with its descriptions, with the aim of enhancing the sensory experience for the reader, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the scene or emotion being portrayed, so it makes sense that ‘vividly’ is itself a common ChatGPT adverb.

5. Significantly

When denoting something as being of high importance, ChatGPT will invariably reach for the adverb ‘significantly’. The chatbot is often presented with opportunities to use this word because it knows that users want to be able to glean the key bits of information from a large wall of text.

6. Namely

ChatGPT loves using ‘namely’ because it doubles as a transition word, which means the chatbot can use it to support and expand upon its statements by mentioning examples. This in turn does wonders for making the text more engaging to read, as well as helping ChatGPT to lengthen its responses if specified to do so by the user.

7. Originally

Again, proving itself to be a purveyor of information before anything else, ChatGPT is always looking for an excuse to give a history lesson. This is why the adverb ‘originally’ has such high usage, as it enables the tool to turn back the clock on a particular topic and talk about how things began.

8. Dramatically

This large language model has a habit of using dramatic language in any context, perhaps because it has recognized a link between dramatic writing and increased reader engagement. Therefore, it’s no surprise that ‘dramatically’ has become an overused adverb.

9. Highly

For whatever reason, it’s simply not enough to introduce a topic as being complex—it always has to be highly complex! I think ChatGPT likes to exaggerate the complexity of a given topic because it makes it all the more impressive that the chatbot can break it down for the user with total ease.

10. Ultimately

This adverb is unique in that it nearly always pops up in the concluding section of a ChatGPT response. If you’ve used the tool for generating articles and guides and stuff like that, you can probably vouch for the frequency at which ‘ultimately’ appears at the beginning of the conclusion.
