Double ly ending


He swam slowly and falteringly.
    verb    adverb 1    adverb 2

He rode determinedly and swiftly.

A double ly ending sentence ends with two adverbs.

You make it more exciting by adding two adverbs on the end to describe how they ran.

The worried people ran quickly and purposefuly.
