However, there are various exceptions:
Introduction 1. Adjectives ending in – ly: These may have the same form as the adverb. Example: She was a kindly and reasonable old lady. The group went for a leisurely walk in the gardens.
Introduction 1. Adjectives ending in – ly: They may require an adverbial phrase: Example: John was a very friendly child, he always treated everyone in a friendly manner. They may not have a direct adverbial equivalent. Example: She is a likely political candidate.
Introduction 2. Adjectives which have the same form as adverbs: Example: Mr. George woke up early, and caught the early train. Jeannie drove fast on the fast lane.
Introduction 3. Adjectives which have the same form as adverbs, but also have a – ly adverb with a different use: Example: The thief looked deeply into the manager’s eyes, and he was deeply ashamed.
