    Adverbs

    So many times today in the news media (TV and Radio) I hear phrases like this:

    > "fairly quickly"
    > "especially strongly" - This was by a local reporter TODAY in this statement:

    "The news of Lehman Brothers filing for bankruptcy was felt especially strongly in Wilmington on Monday, as the company has a federally charted savings bank in downtown Wilmington's Brandywine Building and two other Delaware operations."

    My question: Is this use of Adverbs correct??

    Re: Adverbs

    Yes, it is correct. Adverbs can be used to modify other adverbs. For example: He runs incredibly quickly. The first adverb 'incredibly' gives us more information about the second 'quickly'.
