This is a grammatical question. For a route navigation, which expression is better to say? "slight" is adjective and "slightly" is adverb, so I guess "Turn slightly right" would be the correct in this case. But I do not hear the phrase so often. Anybody knows the correct answer?

Turn slightly right is grammatical since as you said, 'slightly' is an adverb. However, most navigation apps I have used say Make a slight right. Which is also grammatically correct.

  • Thank you for the answer. Good to know that both are grammatically correct and "Make a slight right" is rather general in use. I will consider your suggestion. Thanks.

"Bear right" (e.g. at the fork) is what a native speaker of English would be more likely to say.
