"Let me tell you my family name", said Tom Swift

Amy seems to have trouble distinguishing between adjectives and adverbs in English, inconsistently sometimes adding -ly to adjectives or leaving it off adverbs. It surely doesn't help that predicate adjectives and adverbs have the same form in the German (namely, the bare stem).

For example, she might say, "We have to be carefully" or "I called you very loud".
