    Arrow adjectives not mistakenly used as adverbs?

    Shouldn't 'leisurely'and 'nightly' both be tagged as adverbs too? "Leisurely we strolled to the lake" is a how I thought, and 'nightly'would be included as 'daily' and 'monthly' etc are. Is this so?

    Re: adjectives not mistakenly used as adverbs?

    It depends on the context:

    [1] Adjective: a leisurely walk
    => Here 'leisurely' modifies the noun 'walk'

    [2] Adverb: Leisurely we strolled to the lake.
    => Here 'leisurely' modifies the verb 'strolled'.
