Hi, all,

AFAIK, you don't need a morphological distinction;   adverbs and adjectives
can have the same endings or lack thereof.   I think there always has to be
some syntactic distinction, though, between modifying a noun and modifying a
verb.    That is, unless the language in question happens to be Allnoun.
