This question already has an answer here:
I thought 'real' was an adjective and 'really' was an adverb?
Is it not improper usage to say things like, "I think the cake is real good" ?
Or to have a [news] websites called http://www.realclearpolitics.com/, which I suppose could be correct, though my brain does't process it right away. I'm inclined to think it is attempting to say really clear politics and not real, clear politics
Is this heavy usage and interchangeability of 'real' and 'really' something of the twitter era?
