Does Anyone know the difference between those two?
I was thinking that intensively was more objective and that intensely meant "having to do with emotions".
So, in a sentence like " we are intensely relaxed about people getting poorer and poorer", does the intensely mean "emotionally"? In this context, intensively would then mean extremely, or am I mistaken? =)
Thank you in advance =)
hm, from the context I would say "extremely" as well, but my dictionary said that intensely has something to do with one's emotional state....
so if you had to substitute intensely here with a synonym , you'd go for extremely as well?
@RonBee: yeah, intensely relaxed
yeah, of course: intense pleasure (intense functioning as the adjective here, of course).
the problem is that the newspaper article I was given contains "intensely relaxed". It's a quotation of a statement by an English official
