Hi,

What happens when we have two adverbs in the following:

"She drove extremely quickly"

"She did not drive particularly quickly"

"She drove particularly quickly"

Strictly speaking, am i correct in using quickly instead of quick?

Thanks

Hello Anon,

Yes, "quickly" is the usual form, in a sentence like that, in standard English.

(Your first adverb qualifies your second adverb.)

Best wishes,

I see three of them.
The one in the first sentence modifies an adjective.

One in the second sentence describes the main verb, "finished," and the other tells something about that one.
(An adverb can modify another adverb.)

They all seem to answer the question "how."
