I don't know what you mean by "other usages". See below.

I usually make pizza every Friday. (The adverb of frequency "usually" describes the verb "make".)

She is driving fast. ("Fast" is an adverb describing the verb "drive.") [STRIKE]be )[/STRIKE]

She sincerely apologizes for the delay. (The adverb "sincerely" describes the verb "apologizes".)

NOT A TEACHER

I have found some information that may interest you.

1. "I sincerely remember telling the truth."

a. The adverb "sincerely" modifies "remember."

2. "I remember telling the truth sincerely."

a. The adverb "sincerely" modifies "telling the truth."
