Ok my Eng. III teacher was asking us what part of speech the word "please" is. She knows it's an adverb, but adverbs tell:

How? (much? many?)
Where?
When?
To what extent?

and "please" doesn't tell any of those. Can someone shine light on the subject?

to my knowledge its just one of those things that are irregular, and need to be memorized that they are of that field

edit: i got it

It's an adverb, it describes a verb (think nicely or kindly).

Would you please mow the lawn?
Would you nicely mow the lawn?
Would you kindly mow the lawn?

yeah so thats why

please is an adverb because it answers how you would like it. "I would like it please"


I dunno, that's a real noggin scratcher.

'please' is an adverb?
I kinda assumed it was in that 'random' catagory.
I almost wrote /b/, but decided against it.
