Is: The girl looked angrily to us Or The girl looked angry to us Which one is true? I think say that the second one to me is true but i have been told that the first one is true Thanks for the help
Both are valid sentences, but they mean different things:
- "The girl looked angrily to us": angrily modifies the verb looked. In other words, the girl looked in your direction, and something about the way in which she did so suggested anger on her part.
- "The girl looked angry to us": angry modifies the noun girl. You've come to the conclusion based on her appearance that she's angry, but you're not describing any action that she's taken.
Also note that angrily is an adverb and angry is an adjective.
The girl looked angrily at us = she looked at us with anger (or angrily, adv.)
The girl looked angry to us = she seemed to be angry (adj.)
