Many adverbs are formed by adding -ly to an adjective.

Examples: Slow + -ly = slowly quiet + -ly = quietly Sometimes the addition of -ly to an adjective may require changing the spelling in the adjective.

Examples: Easy + -ly = easily (y changes to i) Full + -ly = fully (ll changes to l). Other adverbs are complete words on their own.
