    I'm working on a paper for school and I'm wondering which sentence is correct.

    I frequently find myself delving deep into my psyche.
    OR
    I frequently find myself delving deeply into my psyche.

    When I initially constructed the sentence, I wanted deep to modify psyche, as in delving into profoundly deep corners of my psyche. But, after my mom edited, I was unclear about what word "deep" was actually modifying.

    Thanks for your time!

    hi Pita646!

    The second sentence is the correct one because verbs should be followed by adverbs.
    adverbs function is to describe verbs.
    e.g: he speaks fluently.
