    Post Suffixes

    I know that -ful means "full of" and that -less means "without" and -ly means "in a certain way" so beautiful would mean full of beauty. Lifeless means without life and lightly means in a light way. So if a word has two suffixes such as hopefully, carefully, and cheerfully. What would they mean.
