The shirt fit snug around the neck.
When I was looking for the proper meaning of snug I came across the above sentence in which snug was used as an adverb. Does the verb fit need to be fits to agree with subject shirt?
'The shirt fit snug(ly) round the neck.' past simple.
'The shirt fits snugly...' present simple.
'...snug little jacket.' 'Snug is an adjective describing the jacket, as is 'little.'
Could we use both snug and snugly in the above sentences? I checked in the dictionary, and both of them can be used as adverbs..
PS: Is the above bold part correct? or should i replace it with:both of them can be used as an adverb?
Yes, both of them can be used as adverbs.
Thanks again. But, how about my question posed in the post-script part of the message?:)
