You can look up the meaning of each word in a dictionary, say here: http://www.onelook.com/
On the other hand, the interpretation of these words depends on one's perception. If something you like happens once a month you might think that it happens rarely, but if something you do not like happens once a month you might think that it happens too often for your taste.

What Kitosdad is trying to show you, is a chart of the relative frequencies of these adverbs,in order of least frequent to most frequent from the top down.
