LATE - He is always late  The train arrived late. When an adjective ends in –ly you can´t form the adverb *The adverb of the adjective “good” is “well”. adding –ly. You have to use a She is a good singer  She sings well. prepositional phrase instead. *“Hardly” and “lately” are not adverbs of manner. They He smiled at me in a friendly way have a different meaning from hard and late. e.g. She can hardly see the street… Has it rained lately?  She did it in the right way. With some verbs like “be”, “become”, “feel”, “get”, “look” and “seem” you must use an adjective instead of an adverb. e.g. She looked very happy... They felt really tired… She got very angry when she found out what had happened during her absence.
