Wrong and Wrongly

Do you like this?
Created Date: Mon 12 Sep 2011

Note:

1) You spelled his name wrong?
2) You spelled his name wrongly?
Which one is correct?

 

Answer:
Both sentences are correct.
"Wrong" and "Wrongly" are almost interchangeable. However, it still depends upon how natural the sentence seems to be.
It's better for you to use "Incorrectly" instead of "Wrongly".

One more thing to remember is in the first sentence, "Wrong" is not really an adverb (This is my feeling so it can be very biased. Feel free to correct! ).
The reason is that the first sentence should be interpreted like this: "The way you spelled his name is wrong".
