C. Word formation: Adjectives and Adverbs

We can form adverbs by adding the suffix ‘-ly’ to an adjective, and adjective by adding the suffix ‘-y’ to a noun. Note that adding the suffix ‘-ly’ to the noun makes that noun an adjective (e.g. friend – friendly, love – lovely, beast – beastly, scholar – scholarly, month –monthly, etc.).
