How (/haʊ/) is an English wh- adverb referring to manner, i.e. ways.
How functions as a wh- adverb, e.g. in
- How are you doing?
How can also function as a adjective, e.g. in
- How are you?
- How was it?
This usage is rather idiomatic, as strictly, we use what+like for adjectives. But, nevertheless, very common.
How is the only wh-word that is spelt beginning with an H, though it is not the only one which is pronounced beginning with a /h/ sound, as who, whom, whose (and related words like whoever) are too. How used to be written "whow.”
How forms lots of how phrases with gradable adjectives and some adverbs.
