Have you ever told a friend to “drive safe”? If you have, there’s a good chance that someone corrected you with “-ly!” Perhaps you even corrected yourself. After all, the second thing we learn about adverbs—besides the fact that an adverb is “a word that describes a verb, an adjective, another adverb, or a sentence”—is that they often end in -ly.
A few flat adverbs survive without any competition from an –ly version. Fast is one: “time goes so fast,” “fast asleep.” So is soon, as in “we’ll be there soon.”

It is an old bugaboo of the grammar police that in any pairing of an adjective with its -ly-suffixed adverb — safe, safely; slow, slowly — the (nominal) adjective must never be used as an adverb. You may ignore this prescription.
Speaking of the word awesome, the meaning has clearly changed over the years. That’s why you don’t hear many older people using the word awesome. Does the event really cause you to go into a state of awe?
