ChanteSez … Leave the LY alone

8 Aug

When you’re using adverbs that have “ly” at the end, you don’t need a hyphen.

For example:

  • The beautifully dressed woman took center stage.
  • The carefully prepared presentation caught the team’s attention.
  • His compassionately listening ear made her feel better.
