+550 List Of Adverbs Ending In LY

The English language is full of adverbs. There are short adverbs and long adverbs. Adverbs ending in -ly and adverbs not ending in -ly. But did you know there are over 550 adverbs that end in -LY.


Adverbs are words that modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. They tell us how, when, where, in what manner, or to what extent something is done.

For example:

  1. He swims slowly. (How?)
  2. He is a slow swimmer. (To what extent?)
  3. He swims slowly compared to Michael Phelps. (In what manner?)
  4. He swims slowly because he is old. (Why?)

Most adverbs are created by adding the suffix -ly to an adjective, as seen in the first example (slowly). However, many common adverbs, such as fast, early, hard, and late, do not end in -ly.
