Why some words end in LY?
Like badly and all those kind of words?
when you use that in what words? what ly mean?

Thank you

everyone who has answered is correct! Except only MOST words that end with -ly are adverbs (it seems that in the English language there are exceptions to every rule!). Also, FYI, an adverb is a word that describes or modifies a verb; just like an adjective describes or modifies a noun.

Love = lovely it is an adverb
Lone = lonely it is an adverb
All words which are ending with ly are adverb.

Usually adverbs end in ly, and adverbs directly relate to verbs.
