    ?difference between slow and slowly?

    Dear Gorgeous Teachers.

    Can I use 'Slow' and 'Slowly' in anytime I want because they both have
    the same meaning?

    Thank you~

    Common usage has made slow acceptable as an adverb, though preferred usage is still as an adjective.
    Basically, slow is a typical flat adverb. Slowly is acceptable in every situation where slow appears, and even in those where slow will not do the job.
