    Lightbulb Adverb of prior

    While writing a publication, I wanted to put 'priorly' thinking this sounds weird.
    Then when it was highlighted as a mistake, and after further searching on the internet, I realized that, indeed, this word was weird and actually non existent.
    I had to change my sentence and put "previously", yet I would love to know what is the adverb of 'prior'. If there is none, why is that?

    Thank you

    Re: Adverb of prior

    Unfortunately, "priorly" is a word.
    I agree with you however: I would not use it.
