    Your sentence is not good English.

    Thanks.
    Actually I was wondering whether this exact word has an adverb in this meaning or not.

    You mean the word order isn't correct or I can't convey this meaning with these words?

    He sighed in a defeated way.
    He sighed resignedly.

    The first sentence makes no sense to me, but the second one does. Do they make sense to you, everyone?
