Good morning forum!
This is a quote from Cambridge D. Online:
It's crazy to have £7000 sitting idle in the bank.
I wonder why we do not say "sitting idly" in the bank, as idle describes the verb sitting. Or is it just an added adjective - must be when it's no adverb .
Is the following sentence valid then:
It's crazy to have £7000 idle in the bank.
Adverbs and adjectives are one of my favourite topics ( sigh).
Thanks in advance!
