Week commencing: 20th November 2017
Group 1 Topic Words ‘ly’ endings:
The suffix –ly is added to an adjective to form an adverb. The rules already learnt still apply. The suffix –ly starts with a consonant letter, so it is added straight on to most root words.
Exceptions: (1) If the root word ends in –y with a consonant letter before it, the y is changed to i, but only if the root word has more than one syllable.
(2) If the root word ends with –le, the –le is changed to –ly.
(3) If the root word ends with –ic, –ally is added rather than just –ly, except in the word publicly.
4) The words truly, duly, wholly.
