    I have searched on web to know what the adverb of the verb "blindfold" is. I have seen both "blindfold" and "blindfolded" as adverb. I am confused when I should use "blindfold" as adverb and when "blindfolded". My gut feeling says blindfolded is correct. Could you please explain which one is correct and what is the adjective of the verb "blindfold"? I give you some examples I have seen:

    • The reporter was driven blindfold to meet the gangster (Google dictionary)
    • The reporter was taken blindfolded to a secret location (Oxford advanced American dictionary)
    • She likes to do it blindfolded (New Scientist Journal)

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Re: adverb

    Both 'blindfold' and 'blindfolded' can be used as both adverbs and adjectives. Examples can be found here.
