1. Adverbs of manner

Adverbs of manner are the largest group of adverbs. Most adverbs of manner are closely related to corresponding adjectives. Although some words can be used as either adjectives or adverbs, in most cases, adverbs of manner are formed by adding ly to the corresponding adjectives.

a. Spelling rules for adding ly
In most cases, ly is simply added to the positive form ofthe adjective. For example:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  bad |  badly |
|  complete |  completely |
|  normal |  normally|
|  surprising |  surprisingly |

i. Adjectives ending in ic
However, when the adjective ends in ic, the syllable al is usually added before the ly ending. For example:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  dramatic|  dramatically |
|  scientific |  scientifically |
|  specific |  specifically |


ii. Adjectives ending in le
When the adjective ends in le preceded by a consonant, the final e is usually changedto y, to form the ly ending. For example:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  favorable |  favorably |
|  humble |  humbly |
|  simple |  simply|

When the adjective ends in le preceded by a vowel, in most cases, ly is simply added to the positive form of the adjective. For example:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  agile |  agilely |
|  sole|  solely |

However, in the case of the adjective whole, the final e is removed before the ending ly is added:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  whole |  wholly |


iii.Adjectives ending in ll
When the adjective ends in ll, only y is added. For example:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  dull |  dully |
|  full |  fully |
|  shrill|  shrilly |


iv. Adjectives ending in ue
When the adjective ends in ue, the final e is usually omitted before the ending ly is added. For example:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  due |  duly|
|  true |  truly |

v. Adjectives ending in y
When the adjective ends in y preceded by a consonant, the y is usually changed to i before the ending ly is added. For example:

|Adjective |Adverb of Manner |
|  busy...
