    Fashion Trends That Didnt Survive the 90s

    Turtlenecks

    Although the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles probably appreciated this trend, turtlenecks are best left for cold weather nowadays.

    Many adverbs end in -ly for example happily, nicely. But some words that end in -ly are adjectives, not adverbs.
    - The most important are friendly, lovely, lonely, ugly, silly, cowardly, likely, unlikely.
    - She gave me a friendly smile. Her singing was lovely

    There are no adverbs friendly or friendlily, lovely or lovelily, etc. We have to use different structures.
    - She smiled at me in a friendly way (NOT She smiled at-me friendly )
    - He gave a silly laugh. (NOT He laughed silly )

    Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, and early are both adjectives and adverbs.
    - It's a daily paper. It comes out daily.
    - an early train I got up early.
