The exclamatory adverbs are relative pronouns with emphatic function, so you are always written with tittle , and is this tilde which precisely helps identify and differentiate in their syntactic function. For example: how much, what, how.
Another way to recognize them is their position in the sentence: they always function as direct or indirect exclamatory sentence headings.
Exclamatory adverbs are closely related to interrogative adverbs , and sometimes both categories overlap, since there are exclamations that hide questions , questions that are more like exclamations or reproaches, so many grammarians consider them as a unique group (adverbs exclamatory-interrogative).

Exclamative adverb or exclamatory adjective?
It is quite common for doubts to arise when having to define whether one of the relative pronouns with an accent is an exclamatory adverb or an exclamatory adjective , and this happens because many times the emphasis of an exclamation is not linked to a single word, but to the entire sentence .
It should be taken into account that in both cases, the words that belong to this category are pronouns that seek to express surprise or emphasis.
The same words can function as exclamatory adjectives or as exclamatory adverbs, as the case may be. In morphological terms, let us remember that what characterizes adverbs is invariance in terms of gender and number. For example: How much I love it! / How much I love them!
This also helps to differentiate the syntactic function, because if it fulfills the function of an adverb, the pronoun will be invariable, but not when it fulfills the function of adjectives . For example: much people! / How many people!
