This paper is part of the research project entitled “The pedagogical application of NooJ to the teaching of Spanish”. Our particular aim is to deal with some elements of analysis concerning adverbs in Spanish, and to focus on the intersection of adverbs and adjectives, completing what we presented in previous papers -always within the range of possibilities offered by the NooJ platform-, and having the teaching of Spanish as our implementation horizon. The corpus consists of two types of texts written in Spanish, which are to be contrasted: journalistic texts and youth texts, that is, texts produced by young people. Given the low frequency of adverbs and adverbial structures in both corpora, the need to reinforce this category, the adverb, is considered.
