Ah, but novels ARE full of adverbs, Sue said informatively. That means that
in a novel, one knows how something was said because of another word--Aren't
you cute, he said sarcastically; aren't you cute, he said fondly; aren't you
cute, he said disinterestedly.

And how do you think I meant this? Guess! suepstewrt -at- aol -dot- com
