I've certainly heard >forms like that, but it sounds uneducated to me. I'd say "She listens >well". For that matter, would you call "old" an adverb in "He felt >old"? It can't be used as an adverb anywhere else (*"he ran old").
You don't have "he looks old"? Or would you consider that "old" to be an adjective? (To my non-native ears, "he ran old" sounds like a contraction of "he ran while being old". Any native that feels the same?) Andreas _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at
