adverb instead of adjective
when do I use adverb instead of adjective ?
for example : "It is technically sophisticated market"
They used the adverb and I don't know why they didn't use the adjective
"technical" instead of "technically"
one more example: " We sell competitivly priced product"
again they used the adverb and for my opinion they should have used adjective "Competitive"
Re: adverb instead of adjective
Because "technically" is an adverb that modifies the adjective "sophisticated," and not the noun "market." And "competitively" is an adverb modifying the adjective/participle "priced," not the noun "market." [Adverbs ending in -ly don't modify nouns.]
