    Re: Rare and Seldom

    When "rare" is used as an adjective, it generally means something that is highly unusual or very hard to find: "I found a rare color painting by Charles Schulz, who was known to work mainly in black-and-white."

    "Rarely" is the adverb form, and then it means the same as seldom: "I rarely shop at Wal-Mart because it's always so crowded."
