In continuation of the paper of Hoede and Li on word graphs for a set of prepositions, word graphs are given for adjectives, adverbs and Chinese classifier words. It is argued that these three classes of words belong to a general class of words that may be called adwords. These words express the fact that certain graphs may be brought into connection with graphs that describe the important classes of nouns and verbs. Some subclasses of adwords are discussed as well as some subclasses of Chinese classifier words.
