14.10 Different meaning of adverb and adjective

We have the same phenomenon that the adverb has a different meaning than the original adjective (hardly - hardly; clear - clearly).

  Examples
C' est quelqu' un de très curieux.
    He is a curious person.
  Curieusement il ne me l' a pas dit.
    Curiously enough, he did not tell me.
  Cela m' est égal.
    I do not care.
  On peut dire également qu' il ne le sait pas, parce qu' il ne veut pas le savoir.
    One could as well say that he does not know, because he does not want to know.
