    1 - straight away = (adv.) immediately, right away (mainly British): "I'll get that book for you straight away." [Also, it is used as a noun, straightaway, to describe the part of a racecourse that has no turns or curves.)

    2 - straightforward = (adj.) direct or honest: "I appreciate your straightforward answer." - or - "What is the most straightforward solution to this problem?"
