21.1 formation of adverbs
There are genuine adverbs like now, today, immediately, soon etc.. which doesn't steem from an adjective and there are adverbs like, slowly, quickly, easily that steems from an adjective. Sometimes there is no difference between the adjective and the adverb. (This car is fast. <=> He runs fast.)
In Portuguese and in all other roman languages the adverbes are formed based on the feminine form of the adjective to which the ending -mente is added. If there is no feminine form because the adjective ends with a consonant or if there is no difference between the masculine and the feminine form the ending -mente is added directly. If there is an accent it is left out.
