comment What is the category name for words like notwithstanding, forthwith, etc…?
This is definitely the closest. All these terms match what I was thinking of, and it's a long list of them! I wonder though where something like "forthwith" would fit in - why is forthwith not a pronomial adverb? Or is it, but it just wasn't added in the wiktionary yet?

@WayfaringStranger: It really was quite credible how bad the day was. Nothing unbelievable about it at all.

comment The day started off incredibly terribly?
I think part of what makes it sound weird is that "terribly" can also mean "incredibly"

Yea absolutely if I saw a movie called "Out" that was a documentary, I'd assume it's about LGBT people
