Student or Learner
Are we supposed to use "loud" or "loudly", here?
"You must speak loud".

Why do we say "read out loud" and not loudly?
So we will "don't speak so loudly"! and not" Don't speak so loud!"? Am I right?
This is another addendum to my first response. After I saw your post yesterday, I checked the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary. They accept loud as an adverb but label it "informal." It is frequently heard in spoken English but, as I've said, it wouldn't be my choice; I'd use loudly.
