literal + ly = literally
nice + ly = nicely
polite + ly = politely

For adjectives that end in -y, we remove the -y and add -ily:

happy  -  happily

Adverbs ending in -LE
For adjectives that end in a consonant + le we remove the -e and add -y:

terrible  -  terribly 
horrible  -  horribly
noble  -  nobly
idle -  idly

Adverbs ending in -IC
If the adjective ends in -ic, we add -ally:

ironic  -  ironically
enthusiastic  -  enthusiastically
realistic  -  realistically
Except: public  -  publicly

Dear Demi,
I desperately hope this really important message swiftly reaches you in good condition. I wrote it quickly in the dimmering light of a sunny afternoon and my handwriting might be sloppy. I was watching the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie last night and I wanted to discuss how The Black Pearl was impressively portraited.

With mighty regards,
your beloved friend.
