Hi! I'm Saskia from BBC Learning English. Do you know how to use fine and finely?
They can both be used as adverbs but fine can also be used as an adjective. Let's look at some sentences.
I broke my phone yesterday, but it's working fine now. Here, fine is an adverb of manner because it indicates doing something in a satisfactory manner.
I was tired but I feel fine now. Here, fine is an adjective but notice how it sits after the verb and it means 'OK'.
I ruined the recipe! I forgot to finely chop the onions. In this sentence, finely is an adverb of degree and it describes how small something needs to be cut up.
Right, I'm going to try that recipe again. I won't forget to finely chop the onions this time! Bye for now!
