[Forum] Adverb phrase interrupting items in a series
Do you need to offset an adverb/adverb phrase that interrupts a common series? For example, like this: I ate an apple, a banana, and[b],[/b] before long[b],[/b] a peach. Or do the same rules apply as for Chicago's "6.26: Commas with intervening dependent clauses (two consecutive conjunctions)"

[Forum] RE: Adverb as part of the subject
I would apply the rule here too. There is actually no noun here, but one is implied - "guests" perhaps, or "attendees." According to [url=]CMOS 5.91[/url] "A two-word phrasal adjective that begins with an adverb ending in ?ly is not h

[Forum] RE: hyphenation: once-hot, now-maddening smile
[quote='Pixna' pid='31295' dateline='1484503910']Replace the words "once" and "now" with other similar descriptors, and you'll see why the hyphens aren't needed. His previously hot but currently maddening smile made me cringe.[/quote] Except that no one endorses inserting a hyphen after an adv

[Forum] RE: Sentence analysis

[Forum] -ly words with attached hyphen
[size=large][font=Times New Roman]Here we are again, fellow members the Hair-Splitters Club! [i]Oily [/i]is most definitely not an adverb, though it is used in a compound adjective. Don't let the [i]-ly[/i] fool you. [i]Oily [/i]is used in the same way that [i]green [/i]is used in "the green-face

[Forum] "So" is technically a conjunctive adverb?
The "Margie Holds Court" website says that "so" is a conjunctive adverb, not a conjunction, and should be punctuated thus: I didn't want to go; so she had a hissy fit. Ridiculous, huh?

[Forum] RE: "Timely" - an adjective in search of a noun
It's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me too (I detest this usage). However, "timely" is indeed an adverb according to M-W. See below: Main Entry: time·ly Function: adverb Etymology: Middle English timliche, timely, from Old English timacrmlice, from timacrma time + -lice, adverb suffix 1 a

[Forum] RE: placement of adverb
I agree that in practice, nobody will misread this, but there is a difference if you want to be precise. [url=]This site[/url] provides a nice explanation.

[Forum] RE: Using "and so" as a conjunction.
"So" can mean "therefore" as either an adverb, according to Merriam-Webster on this page or as a conjunction. Notice in the example under #3 in the adverb sense of "so" -  [i]:Therefore, consequently[/i] [i]The witness was biased and so unreliable
