    correctly would be

    Which are correct:



    1-"I is tall." is not correct. Correctly would be "I am tall."
    2-"I is tall." is not correct. Correctly, it would be "I am tall."

    3-This heater has not been assembled correctly. Correctly there would
    be a gasket here.

    I am pretty sure 2 is correct. But I cannot figure out what the adverb
    is doing in the beginning of the sentence and can't find other
    sentences like it where another adverb is used. I think it is short
    for 'Said correctly, (or 'Written correctly') it would be "I am tall."

    Re: correctly would be

    To me, they all sound odd. I have never come across it written (or said) that way before. This is a first.
