English - Adverb

LIKELY (_comparative_ MORE LIKELY, _superlative_ MOST LIKELY) * (obsolete) Similarly. * Probably. _LIKELY he'll win the election in this economy._ USAGE NOTES * As an adverb, _likely_ is often preceded by a modifier such as _most_ or _quite_. * Some usage guides consider adverbial _likely_ - instead of _probably_ - to be poor style and an artificial, sometimes pretentious way to imply a sense of erudition. One can also opt for the somewhat rarer adverbial form likelily. TRANSLATIONS

likely (comparative more likely, superlative most likely)

  1. (obsolete) Similarly.
  2. Probably.
    Likely he'll win the election in this economy.
