In conversation, many people drop the 'ly' ending
from adverbs. For example, we incorrectly say things such
as "I was sure lucky and "the work went real good" instead
of "surely lucky" and "really well." Especially in writing,
the adverb form should be used to describe verbs and other
Examples (the italicized words are adverbs):
He surely is lucky to get the prize money.
I am really pleased to hear of your promotion.
I think you did well yesterday.
