    Question Looking for an adverb...

    Hi,
    I'm looking for the right adverb we use when somebody says something ironically. (I need some adverb other than "ironically") Is it possible to say, 'He said that to me while being snide (with me)', or '...while being sarky.'

    (especially the adverb used in daily speech, that's the most common one)

    Many thanks.

    You can say that he said it to you in a sarky way.

    Sarky? Is that British slang? How about using sarcastically?
