Homework Help: Grammar

Posted by Chris S. on Thursday, February 26, 2009 at 3:27pm.

Adverbs modify verbs. Adjectives modify nouns.

Adjective: That car is different.
Adverb: He thinks differently.

What happens with the following verbs and why?

He looks __________

Different or differently?

He sounds

different or differently?

The form of Different is modifying the verbs look or sound, so shouldn't the correct answer be the adverb "differently?" The problem is that this doesn't sound correct.

What is the unique situation here?

Thanks
