I read this sentence in a book : After giving birth to my youngest brother the previous year, she had become very sickly.
Can we write sick instead of sickly?? If Yes, then pls explain me the difference between the two?
. 'Sickly' = 'disposed/likely/subsceptible to get ill.' Her health was less vigorous after the birth; she became less resistant to infection.
