Adverbs that end in 'ly' are formed by adding the suffix to an adjective,
sometimes dropping a terminal 'e' (usually for words ending in '-able')
able --> ably (drop the 'e')
abrupt --> abruptly
commendable --> commendably (drop the 'e')
creative --> creatively ('e' remains because syllable not stressed)
tidy --> tidily (change 'y' to 'i' before suffix)
Cowardly is not an adverb because there is no adjective at the root;
coward is exclusively a noun. Here is a non-exhaustive list of words
elderly
friendly
likely
lovely
silly
ugly
costly
curly
deadly
unfriendly
bodily
chilly
cowardly
disorderly
easterly
ghastly
ghostly
grisly
heavenly
hilly
holy
homely
jolly
leisurely
lively
lonely
manly
measly
melancholy
miserly
northerly
oily
orderly
quarterly
scholarly
sly
smelly
southerly
stately
surly
timely
unlikely
unruly
unsightly
untimely
westerly
wobbly
woolly
The reason it is possible to find dictionaries that say 'cowardly' and a
few other non-adverb 'ly' words are adverbs is because dictionaries are
written and edited by leftists who are overly ['overly' is an adverb]
concerned with popularity, which includes a political stance of not
judging speech as 'nonstandard' because to do so is elitism, and leftists
consider elitism to be bad. So, if a handful of stupid people wrongly
[another adverb] use 'cowardly' as an adverb, that's enough to get the
Marxian lexicographers to include an entry for it as an adverb, because
to do otherwise would be to engage in 'classism'.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb, nor is 'timely', nor is any of the words
listed above. They can't be - they do not have an adjective preceding the suffix.
That's interesting info (about which I'd been ignorant). Thank you.
The trouble is that he is incorrect.
No, it's correct. You have been instructed about dictionaries and why
they get things wrong.
Because they're written by leftists?
In part.
Heh. You get funnier by the day.
They get things wrong because the Marxian
editors are trying to be more "democratic" and accommodate idiots like
you. Three idiots - you and two other right-wingnut knuckle-draggers
here - will incorrectly use 'cowardly' as an adverb, and the Marxian
editors consider that to be established. That really is how they do it.
Blah, blah, blah.
<chuckle> I'm right and you know it. You're just too much of an
insecure asshole to admit that you are wrong, when you plainly are wrong.
No, you're wrong and
I'm right, and you know it. Being immature and insecure and stubborn,
you can't bring yourself to admit your error.
Did you contact the authors of the dictionaries I cited
No, I work only with reputable dictionaries.
BTW, the dictionaries I cited are reputable
They aren't. They're for people who are only semi-literate - you, for
instance. Literate people don't use them.
So what did the authors say when you wrote them to "correct their
errors"?
Being Marxists, they threatened to send me to the gulag.
Thank you for admitting you did not contact the authors.
No such admission.
Then post the response you received from them, coward.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - there is now adjective at its root. That's
because 'cowardly' *IS* the adjective.
Get back to us when
I've got back to you already. 'Cowardly' is not an adverb, and a
"people's dictionary" that says it is an adverb is wrong. They found
three fuckwits - you and two others - who used it incorrectly as an
adverb, and based on observed usage - by fuckwits - they then said it's
an adverb. Your usage was wrong, and their reliance on your usage was
stupid.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - settled.
'Cowardly' was proven to be usable as an adverb.
No. *YOU* use it as one, but the usage is wrong. It is not an adverb.
All adverbs ending in 'ly' are formed by appending the suffix to an
adjective - 100% of them. There is no adjective 'coward'; the word is
exclusively a noun.

There is no - and there can *BE* no - adverb 'cowardly'. You are wrong.

'Gullible' is not in the dictionary, but 'gullable' is.
'Gullible' is in the Compact Oxford English Dictionary: adjective, easily
persuaded to believe something. It comes from the verb 'gull' meaning to fool
or deceive someone.

It's also in Webster's Deluxe Color Edition New World Dictionary of American English adj. easily cheated or tricked. 'Gullable' is mentioned as an old spelling.

If it's in those two dictionaries, I'm sure it's in others, too.

No, it means that grammatically, "cowardly" can be properly used as an
adverb.

Dictionaries record lexicon at the time they published. They do not control it.

The usual categories of noun, verb, adjective, and adverb are morphological
categories from latin foisted on english. English has much simpler morphology
than latin or old english, and more fluid rules about the roles words can
fulfill. We also have a number of affixes and particles that can be used freely
to adapt roles and subtly vary semantics.

Basically whatever a group of native speakers find acceptable and deliberately
produce is the language for that group. Syntax descriptions, morphological
descriptions, and lexicons are linguistic tools to systemise the description of
the language as she is spoken, not controls to force it to be spoken that way.

If native speakers use the 'coward' as an adverb, adjective, noun, and verb,
english is flexible enough to allow that. And use 'cowardly' as an adverb. It's
unlikely to hear 'cowardly' in other roles, but if native speakers find it
useful, it becomes part of the language.

Note Humpty-Dumpty's argument fails when you use language to communicate with
others. In that case the parties must agree what the words and constructs mean
to communicate. I hope you find this purply.

No. Dictionaries, especially on-line ones aimed at illiterates, and most
of which are edited by Marxists, do not *define* what is correct usage.
What they do is *describe* *popular* usage. What is "popular" is mostly
wrong.

'Cowardly' is not an adverb, and 'coward' is not an adjective - it is an
adjunct noun as your shitty Marxian dictionary is using it.

This is settled: 'cowardly' is not an adverb (and 'coward' is not an
adjective.)

Prescriptivism and descriptivism are contrasting approaches to grammar
and usage, particularly to how they are taught. Both are concerned with
the state of a language — descriptivism with how it’s used, prescriptivism
with how it should be used. Descriptivists describe, systematically
recording and analysing the endlessly changing ways people speak and
write. Descriptive advice is, as Jesse Sheidlower put it, almost an
oxymoron. Prescriptivists prescribe and sometimes proscribe, emphasising
rules and guidelines based on the conservation of customs (and sometimes
a mythical ideal of correctness), and on judging what is or isn’t
acceptable — which poses, among other questions: acceptable to whom, when,
and why?

It doesn't:

adverb
*archaic*

In a way which shows a lack of courage.


"Archaic" - not in current usage.

'Cowardly' is not an adverb. This is settled. Anyone using the word as
an adverb today is fucking up. She ("NoBody") is wrongly thinking that
the 'ly' suffix is what makes it an adverb. It doesn't. I have given a
long list of words ending in 'ly' that are not - and *cannot* be - adverbs.

elderly
friendly
likely
lovely
silly
ugly
costly
curly
deadly
unfriendly
bodily
chilly
cowardly
disorderly
easterly
ghastly
ghostly
grisly
heavenly
hilly
holy
homely
jolly
leisurely
lively
lonely

None of those is an adverb. None of those could *possibly* be an
adverb. That's because none of them is formed by appending 'ly' to an
adjective. 'Coward' cannot be an adjective. That other illiterate
asshole posting some bullshit about a "coward cry" used an example of
'coward' as an adjunct noun, *NOT* an adjective. 'Coward' is not an
adjective - period.

No literate person uses 'cowardly' as an adverb - never.

'Cowardly' was proven to be usable as an adverb.
No. *YOU* use it as one, but the usage is wrong. It is not an adverb.
All adverbs ending in 'ly' are formed by appending the suffix to an
adjective - 100% of them. There is no adjective 'coward'; the word is
exclusively a noun.
There is no - and there can *BE* no - adverb 'cowardly'. You are wrong.
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/coward

No.
The link says yes. You're done.

sometimes dropping a terminal 'e' (usually for words ending in '-able')
able --> ably (drop the 'e')
abrupt --> abruptly
commendable --> commendably (drop the 'e')
creative --> creatively ('e' remains because syllable not stressed)

The reason it is possible to find dictionaries that say 'cowardly' and a
few other non-adverb 'ly' words are adverbs is because dictionaries are
written and edited by leftists who are overly ['overly' is an adverb]
concerned with popularity, which includes a political stance of not
judging speech as 'nonstandard' because to do so is elitism, and leftists
consider elitism to be bad. So, if a handful of stupid people wrongly
[another adverb] use 'cowardly' as an adverb, that's enough to get the
Marxian lexicographers to include an entry for it as an adverb, because
to do otherwise would be to engage in 'classism'.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb, nor is 'timely', nor is any of the words
listed above. They can't be - they do not have an adjective preceding the suffix.
That's interesting info (about which I'd been ignorant). Thank you.
The trouble is that he is incorrect.
No, it's correct. You have been instructed about dictionaries and why
they get things wrong.

In part.
Heh. You get funnier by the day.
They get things wrong because the Marxian
editors are trying to be more "democratic" and accommodate idiots like
you. Three idiots - you and two other right-wingnut knuckle-draggers
here - will incorrectly use 'cowardly' as an adverb, and the Marxian
editors consider that to be established. That really is how they do it.
Blah, blah, blah.
<chuckle> I'm right and you know it. You're just too much of an
insecure asshole to admit that you are wrong, when you plainly are wrong.
No, you're wrong and
I'm right, and you know it. Being immature and insecure and stubborn,
you can't bring yourself to admit your error.
Did you contact the authors of the dictionaries I cited
No, I work only with reputable dictionaries.
BTW, the dictionaries I cited are reputable
They aren't. They're for people who are only semi-literate - you, for
instance. Literate people don't use them.
So what did the authors say when you wrote them to "correct their
errors"?
Being Marxists, they threatened to send me to the gulag.
Thank you for admitting you did not contact the authors.
No such admission.

The reason it is possible to find dictionaries that say 'cowardly' and a
few other non-adverb 'ly' words are adverbs is because dictionaries are
written and edited by leftists who are overly ['overly' is an adverb]
concerned with popularity, which includes a political stance of not
judging speech as 'nonstandard' because to do so is elitism, and leftists
consider elitism to be bad. So, if a handful of stupid people wrongly
[another adverb] use 'cowardly' as an adverb, that's enough to get the
Marxian lexicographers to include an entry for it as an adverb, because
to do otherwise would be to engage in 'classism'.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb, nor is 'timely', nor is any of the words
listed above. They can't be - they do not have an adjective preceding the suffix.
That's interesting info (about which I'd been ignorant). Thank you.
The trouble is that he is incorrect.
No, it's correct. You have been instructed about dictionaries and why
they get things wrong.
Because they're written by leftists?
In part.
Heh. You get funnier by the day.
They get things wrong because the Marxian
editors are trying to be more "democratic" and accommodate idiots like
you. Three idiots - you and two other right-wingnut knuckle-draggers
here - will incorrectly use 'cowardly' as an adverb, and the Marxian
editors consider that to be established. That really is how they do it.
Blah, blah, blah.
<chuckle> I'm right and you know it. You're just too much of an
insecure asshole to admit that you are wrong, when you plainly are wrong.
No, you're wrong and
I'm right, and you know it. Being immature and insecure and stubborn,
you can't bring yourself to admit your error.
Did you contact the authors of the dictionaries I cited
No, I work only with reputable dictionaries.
BTW, the dictionaries I cited are reputable
They aren't. They're for people who are only semi-literate - you, for
instance. Literate people don't use them.
So what did the authors say when you wrote them to "correct their
errors"?
Being Marxists, they threatened to send me to the gulag.
Thank you for admitting you did not contact the authors.
No such admission.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - there is now adjective at its root. That's
because 'cowardly' *IS* the adjective.
Get back to us when
I've got back to you already. 'Cowardly' is not an adverb, and a
"people's dictionary" that says it is an adverb is wrong. They found
three fuckwits - you and two others - who used it incorrectly as an
adverb, and based on observed usage - by fuckwits - they then said it's
an adverb. Your usage was wrong, and their reliance on your usage was
stupid.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - settled.
'Cowardly' was proven to be usable as an adverb.
No. *YOU* use it as one, but the usage is wrong. It is not an adverb.
All adverbs ending in 'ly' are formed by appending the suffix to an
adjective - 100% of them. There is no adjective 'coward'; the word is
exclusively a noun.
There is no - and there can *BE* no - adverb 'cowardly'. You are wrong.
Show us the response you received from the authors of the dictionaries
Sorry - confidential.
They called you a moron
No.

Adverbs that end in 'ly' are formed by adding the suffix to an adjective,
sometimes dropping a terminal 'e' (usually for words ending in '-able')
able --> ably (drop the 'e')
abrupt --> abruptly
commendable --> commendably (drop the 'e')
creative --> creatively ('e' remains because syllable not stressed)
tidy --> tidily (change 'y' to 'i' before suffix)

The reason it is possible to find dictionaries that say 'cowardly' and a
few other non-adverb 'ly' words are adverbs is because dictionaries are
written and edited by leftists who are overly ['overly' is an adverb]
concerned with popularity, which includes a political stance of not
judging speech as 'nonstandard' because to do so is elitism, and leftists
consider elitism to be bad. So, if a handful of stupid people wrongly
[another adverb] use 'cowardly' as an adverb, that's enough to get the
Marxian lexicographers to include an entry for it as an adverb, because
to do otherwise would be to engage in 'classism'.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb, nor is 'timely', nor is any of the words
listed above. They can't be - they do not have an adjective preceding the suffix.
That's interesting info (about which I'd been ignorant). Thank you.
The trouble is that he is incorrect.
No, it's correct. You have been instructed about dictionaries and why
they get things wrong.
Because they're written by leftists?
In part.
Heh. You get funnier by the day.
They get things wrong because the Marxian
editors are trying to be more "democratic" and accommodate idiots like
you. Three idiots - you and two other right-wingnut knuckle-draggers
here - will incorrectly use 'cowardly' as an adverb, and the Marxian
editors consider that to be established. That really is how they do it.
Blah, blah, blah.
<chuckle> I'm right and you know it. You're just too much of an
insecure asshole to admit that you are wrong, when you plainly are wrong.
No, you're wrong and
I'm right, and you know it. Being immature and insecure and stubborn,
you can't bring yourself to admit your error.
Did you contact the authors of the dictionaries I cited
No, I work only with reputable dictionaries.
BTW, the dictionaries I cited are reputable
They aren't. They're for people who are only semi-literate - you, for
instance. Literate people don't use them.
So what did the authors say when you wrote them to "correct their
errors"?
Being Marxists, they threatened to send me to the gulag.
Thank you for admitting you did not contact the authors.
No such admission.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - there is now adjective at its root. That's
because 'cowardly' *IS* the adjective.
Get back to us when
I've got back to you already. 'Cowardly' is not an adverb, and a
"people's dictionary" that says it is an adverb is wrong. They found
three fuckwits - you and two others - who used it incorrectly as an
adverb, and based on observed usage - by fuckwits - they then said it's
an adverb. Your usage was wrong, and their reliance on your usage was
stupid.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - settled.
'Cowardly' was proven to be usable as an adverb.
No. *YOU* use it as one, but the usage is wrong. It is not an adverb.
All adverbs ending in 'ly' are formed by appending the suffix to an
adjective - 100% of them. There is no adjective 'coward'; the word is
exclusively a noun.
There is no - and there can *BE* no - adverb 'cowardly'. You are wrong.
Show us the response you received from the authors of the dictionaries
Sorry - confidential.
They called you a moron
No.
Yes.
No.
The dictionary editors called you a moron, and confirmed that 'cowardly'
is not an adverb, but they put a listing in for it anyway to sell more
dictionaries to illiterate fuckwits like you.
Then you won't mind posting their reply
It's confidential.
In other words, you're lying (again).

Here's "Preston" posting under his sockpuppet "Rudy". Dumb F forgot
to change his ID before posting.

Adverbs that end in 'ly' are formed by adding the suffix to an adjective,
sometimes dropping a terminal 'e' (usually for words ending in '-able')
able --> ably (drop the 'e')
abrupt --> abruptly
commendable --> commendably (drop the 'e')
creative --> creatively ('e' remains because syllable not stressed)

stupid.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - settled.
'Cowardly' was proven to be usable as an adverb.
No. *YOU* use it as one, but the usage is wrong. It is not an adverb.
All adverbs ending in 'ly' are formed by appending the suffix to an
adjective - 100% of them. There is no adjective 'coward'; the word is
exclusively a noun.
There is no - and there can *BE* no - adverb 'cowardly'. You are wrong.
Show us the response you received from the authors of the dictionaries
Sorry - confidential.
They called you a moron
No.
Yes.
No.
The dictionary editors called you a moron, and confirmed that 'cowardly'

Here's "Preston" posting under his sockpuppet "Rudy". Dumb F forgot

Adverbs that end in 'ly' are formed by adding the suffix to an adjective,
sometimes dropping a terminal 'e' (usually for words ending in '-able')
able --> ably (drop the 'e')
abrupt --> abruptly
commendable --> commendably (drop the 'e')
creative --> creatively ('e' remains because syllable not stressed)
tidy --> tidily (change 'y' to 'i' before suffix)
Cowardly is not an adverb because there is no adjective at the root;
coward is exclusively a noun. Here is a non-exhaustive list of words
elderly
friendly
likely
lovely
silly
ugly
costly
curly
deadly
unfriendly
bodily
chilly
cowardly
disorderly
easterly
ghastly
ghostly
grisly
heavenly
hilly
holy
homely
jolly
leisurely
lively
lonely

measly

miserly

The reason it is possible to find dictionaries that say 'cowardly' and a
few other non-adverb 'ly' words are adverbs is because dictionaries are
written and edited by leftists who are overly ['overly' is an adverb]
concerned with popularity, which includes a political stance of not
judging speech as 'nonstandard' because to do so is elitism, and leftists
consider elitism to be bad. So, if a handful of stupid people wrongly
[another adverb] use 'cowardly' as an adverb, that's enough to get the
Marxian lexicographers to include an entry for it as an adverb, because
to do otherwise would be to engage in 'classism'.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb, nor is 'timely', nor is any of the words
listed above. They can't be - they do not have an adjective preceding the suffix.
That's interesting info (about which I'd been ignorant). Thank you.
The trouble is that he is incorrect.
No, it's correct. You have been instructed about dictionaries and why
they get things wrong.
Because they're written by leftists?
In part.
Heh. You get funnier by the day.
They get things wrong because the Marxian
editors are trying to be more "democratic" and accommodate idiots like
you. Three idiots - you and two other right-wingnut knuckle-draggers
here - will incorrectly use 'cowardly' as an adverb, and the Marxian
editors consider that to be established. That really is how they do it.
Blah, blah, blah.
<chuckle> I'm right and you know it. You're just too much of an
insecure asshole to admit that you are wrong, when you plainly are wrong.
No, you're wrong and
I'm right, and you know it. Being immature and insecure and stubborn,
you can't bring yourself to admit your error.
Did you contact the authors of the dictionaries I cited
No, I work only with reputable dictionaries.
BTW, the dictionaries I cited are reputable
They aren't. They're for people who are only semi-literate - you, for
instance. Literate people don't use them.
So what did the authors say when you wrote them to "correct their
errors"?
Being Marxists, they threatened to send me to the gulag.
Thank you for admitting you did not contact the authors.
No such admission.

Here's "Preston" posting under his sockpuppet "Rudy". Dumb F forgot

Adverbs that end in 'ly' are formed by adding the suffix to an adjective,
sometimes dropping a terminal 'e' (usually for words ending in '-able')
able --> ably (drop the 'e')
abrupt --> abruptly
commendable --> commendably (drop the 'e')
creative --> creatively ('e' remains because syllable not stressed)
tidy --> tidily (change 'y' to 'i' before suffix)
Cowardly is not an adverb because there is no adjective at the root;
coward is exclusively a noun. Here is a non-exhaustive list of words
elderly
friendly
likely
lovely
silly
ugly
costly
curly
deadly
unfriendly
bodily
chilly
cowardly
disorderly
easterly
ghastly
ghostly
grisly
heavenly
hilly
holy
homely
jolly
leisurely
lively
lonely
manly
measly
melancholy
miserly
northerly
oily
orderly
quarterly
scholarly
sly
smelly
southerly
stately
surly
timely
unlikely
unruly
unsightly
untimely
westerly
wobbly
woolly
The reason it is possible to find dictionaries that say 'cowardly' and a
few other non-adverb 'ly' words are adverbs is because dictionaries are
written and edited by leftists who are overly ['overly' is an adverb]
concerned with popularity, which includes a political stance of not
judging speech as 'nonstandard' because to do so is elitism, and leftists
consider elitism to be bad. So, if a handful of stupid people wrongly
[another adverb] use 'cowardly' as an adverb, that's enough to get the
Marxian lexicographers to include an entry for it as an adverb, because
to do otherwise would be to engage in 'classism'.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb, nor is 'timely', nor is any of the words
listed above. They can't be - they do not have an adjective preceding the suffix.
That's interesting info (about which I'd been ignorant). Thank you.
The trouble is that he is incorrect.
No, it's correct. You have been instructed about dictionaries and why
they get things wrong.
Because they're written by leftists?
In part.
Heh. You get funnier by the day.
They get things wrong because the Marxian
editors are trying to be more "democratic" and accommodate idiots like
you. Three idiots - you and two other right-wingnut knuckle-draggers
here - will incorrectly use 'cowardly' as an adverb, and the Marxian
editors consider that to be established. That really is how they do it.
Blah, blah, blah.
<chuckle> I'm right and you know it. You're just too much of an
insecure asshole to admit that you are wrong, when you plainly are wrong.
No, you're wrong and
I'm right, and you know it. Being immature and insecure and stubborn,
you can't bring yourself to admit your error.
Did you contact the authors of the dictionaries I cited
No, I work only with reputable dictionaries.
BTW, the dictionaries I cited are reputable
They aren't. They're for people who are only semi-literate - you, for
instance. Literate people don't use them.
So what did the authors say when you wrote them to "correct their
errors"?
Being Marxists, they threatened to send me to the gulag.
Thank you for admitting you did not contact the authors.
No such admission.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - there is now adjective at its root. That's
because 'cowardly' *IS* the adjective.
Get back to us when
I've got back to you already. 'Cowardly' is not an adverb, and a
"people's dictionary" that says it is an adverb is wrong. They found
three fuckwits - you and two others - who used it incorrectly as an
adverb, and based on observed usage - by fuckwits - they then said it's
an adverb. Your usage was wrong, and their reliance on your usage was
stupid.
'Cowardly' is not an adverb - settled.
'Cowardly' was proven to be usable as an adverb.
No. *YOU* use it as one, but the usage is wrong. It is not an adverb.
All adverbs ending in 'ly' are formed by appending the suffix to an
adjective - 100% of them. There is no adjective 'coward'; the word is
exclusively a noun.
There is no - and there can *BE* no - adverb 'cowardly'. You are wrong.
Show us the response you received from the authors of the dictionaries
Sorry - confidential.
They called you a moron
No.
Yes.
No.
The dictionary editors called you a moron, and confirmed that 'cowardly'
is not an adverb, but they put a listing in for it anyway to sell more
dictionaries to illiterate fuckwits like you.
Then you won't mind posting their reply
It's confidential.
In other words
No other words needed.
You mean other than
the ones I wrote. Yes.
Your cowardly behavior
None...but at least you used 'cowardly' correctly, as an adjective - its
*only* proper sense.
And cowardly Preston ignores the dictionary once again.
I've instructed you already on the deficiencies of dictionaries and the semi-literate boneheads who need them.
