Formation of Adverbs
♦ We usually form an adverb by adding -ly to the adjective.
e.g. serious - seriously
♦ Adjectives ending in -le drop the -e and take -y.
e.g. gentle - gently
♦ Adjectives ending in consonant + у drop the -y and take -ily.
e.g. happy - happily
♦ Adjectives ending in -l take -ly.
e.g. awful - awfully
♦ Adjectives ending in -ic usually take -ally.
e.g. dramatic - dramatically But: public - publicly
♦ Adjectives ending in -e take -ly.
e.g. polite - politely But: true - truly
1. The following words end in –ly, but they are adjectives: elderly, cowardly, friendly, likely, deadly, lively, lonely, silly, ugly, lovely, etc.
e.g. She’s a lively child.
We use the words way/manner to form their adverbs.
e.g. She greeted me in a friendly way/manner.
He complained in a cowardly way/manner.
2. Some adverbs have the same form as adjectives. These include: hard, fast, free, high, low, deep, early, late, long, near, straight, right, wrong. Also hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.
