    Re: words

    Well I assume there is the word "combinedly" since it appears on dictionary.com
    Combinedly - Definitions from Dictionary.com
    and updation:
    updation - Definitions from Dictionary.com
    However, these words are used with great infrequency, so I wouldn't use them unless you absolutely had to.

    Re: words

    Combindely, or any other attempt to add ly to combine is not an English word. I found combinatory and combinatorially but I wouldn't recommend using them. In combination and combined work just fine.

    Update can be a noun or a verb, there is no need to add ...tion to make it a noun.

    I saw an update on the approaching storm. We should update our warnings.
