    need help with words family

    Suppose,I learnt a word " remorse" and I just guessed that "remorsely" is correct but when I read it was not a word. How do I go through this?

    Dictionaries give a word's related forms.

    With "remorse", the adjective is "remorseful" and the adverb is "remorsefully".

    Please start a new thread for the question in bold.

    We try to keep unrelated questions in separate threads. Once you've done that, I'll change the title of this thread to "Remorsefully."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
