Hi! For number 1 the underlined word is an adjective. For number 2 the underlined word is an adverb. Correct? Thanks, Fulvio

1. He thinks loud!

2. He thinks economically.

+1
yellowstarstruck1. He thinks loud!

This is not correct English, or at least not standard English. "loud" may be a mistake for "aloud", which would be an adverb, or it may be deliberately inventive language, depending on where it came from.

yellowstarstruck2. He thinks economically.

Yes, adverb.

Sorry, it occurred to me later that "He thinks loud" could have other interpretations too, but more context is needed. It is not an easy sentence to assess out of context.

Sorry I should have put the context in. I heard that on an episode of the TV show "The Addams Family".

In that case it is not likely to be an error as such. It could mean "He thinks loudly!", but I can't tell without knowing the full context. Of course, you cannot literally "think loudly", but it may be possible in a "creative" sense.
