    Re: superlative of adverbs

    Yes, we have. Most usually, they are formed with most.

    Example:
    Most usually
    , they are formed with
    "most"

    As Mariner suggested, we can form adverb superlatives by adding "most" (though I wouldn't have chosen "usually").

    We can also form them by changing the y to i and adding -est.

    Most likely
