    Default Is "only" an adverb?

    Is the word "only" an adverb? If not then what type of word would it be? No idea why this question occurred to me I was just wondering.

    It is, It can also be an adjective.

    How can we trust the people who typed out the dictionaries? How do we know adverb really means adverb? How do we know that the people who initally made the word adverb didn't mean noun or consonant? Maybe the secretary who first wrote out the description for adverb was confused? Hmm.

    It makes you think of a lot of things, like Tasty Wheat. Maybe Tasty Wheat tastes like oatmeal or tuna fish.
