Anonymous asked: Do you know any adverbs that are synonyms to 'rudely' or 'harshly' ?

Brusquely, she rattled off, “Roughly, curtly, snippily, abrasively, gruffly, crudely, sharply, abruptly, derisively, disparagingly, bluntly, acidly, acerbically, nastily, caustically.”

"And also brusquely," she added, her tone milder, and slightly apologetic for her earlier rudeness. "Of course, there are probably more, and not all of these are exact synonyms, but you can see which one feels right for you.”
