lent as adverb
This lesson says -ent adjectives become -emment adverbs. However a previous lesson said lent becomes lentement as adverb. Are both spelling forms accepted?
This question relates to:French lesson "Forming adverbs from adjectives ending in -ant and -ent"
No, "lentement" is definitely correct. Lentemment is wrong. I would guess that the adjective "lent" is simply too short to claim that its stem is simple "l-". Therefore the rule doesn't apply here. That's how I would argue it before a judge ;)
