    'dominant' or 'dominantly' in the following sentence?

    Hi All,

    I am wondering if I should say: "hot springs are dominantly on the summit of mountain' or 'hot springs are dominant on the summit of the mountain'? The idea I want to convey is most of the hot springs on the mountain are located on its summit.

    Thanks and happy holiday!

    It should be the adjective, but the sentence doesn't work for me. How about Hot springs predominate... or Most of the hot springs are at the summit?

    The word you're looking for is "predominantly."

    "The hot springs are predominantly around the summit of the mountain."
