I often wondered how a comparative adverb was supposed to be written. If we use strong as an example, I wondered if strongly would become strongerly when in comparative. I learned that it was not allowed, though I have no recently come to a stop, as there is something related to this bugging me. I'll have to use an example sentence (also the sentence where my question originates from).
It didn’t do much to pain her, like if she didn’t feel it, or felt it much weaker.
My question is, should the adjective in such a situation be weaker or more weakly. Just as a sidenote, I don't like the word weakly, because it sounds like weekly. It's stupid, I know, especially considering I like the word weekly a lot actually. I guess my brain decided whom of them to fancy.
Edit I have not formulated myself clearly enough, as my question was put on hold. What I'm looking for is whom of these sentences are correct, or more correct.
It didn't do much to pain her, like if she didn't feel it, or felt it much weaker.
It didn't do much to pain her, like if she didn't feel it, or felt it much more weakly.
Now, don't flag this as off-topic because I'm asking for what I should write or something like that. I simply use these sentences as examples so that I always know what is more correct, weaker or more weakly. -Or any other adjective. The resource for these sentences is my book. Also, for those who wondered, the reason she doesn't feel anything is because she's a zombie. The POV character doesn't know this, hence the confusion.
