    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections to your post above. It is important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".

    Does it help if I tell you that the word "that" could be added to both those phrases?

    The way that she looks ...
    The way that it tastes ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: can noun be adverbs?

    I never saw it that way. One more question, Do you see how I said that way, can that be an adverb.

    I suggest you reread the rules emsr2d2 gave you and edit your question accordingly.

    Sorry I don't understand. So you're saying that I never saw it that way can also be I never saw it that that way.

    Re: can noun be adverbs?

    I think he's telling you to capitalise 'i', which isn't an English word unless it's written 'I'. Do you understand that?
    Naturally, it's pronounced the same way.

    Re: can noun be adverbs?

    How else do you think we could convey the meaning of "The way she looks ..."?
