SKILL 49: RECOGNIZE -LY ADJECTIVES


Generally, when a word ends in “-Iy” in English, it is an adverb. However, there are a few words ending in “-ly” that are adjectives, and these “-ly” adjectives can cause confusion in written expression questions on the TOEFL test.



This example is correct, but it appears to be incorrect; it appears that there is an -ly adverb in front of the noun report. However, “weekly” is an adjective that describes the noun “report”.
