    Help Please

    Is "Play fearless." an acceptable use of English? Or would "Play fearlessly." be the only correct way? Thank you.

    Yes, unless there was a noun after it- play fearless football. However, you may hear speakers of some regional variations using adjectives where grammatically adverbs are required, but this is regarded as wrong.
