As far as I know, "move" is a Verb, "unassisted" is an adjective, and a verb is modified by an adverb. So could you please help me to explain this following sentence, which is from the Oxford dictionary? "She could not move unassisted."

  • Unassisted modifies she, not move. – Kate Bunting May 28 '20 at 8:06
  • It's the same as she could not move without assistance or she could not move unless she was being assisted. – Jason Bassford May 28 '20 at 9:54
