The final "ly" in this case does not indicate an adverb, so exemplified by hernesheir , and also holds true for "niggardly," which also means "stingy."

Your word of the day for Dec 5 was "daimio." Excuse me, but you did not use any quotes from James Clavell's Shogun, nor did you list an alternate spelling of "daimyo," which I believe is preferred.
