Suffixes That Create Adverbs (#1)

Based on
Lessons in English: Higher Course
Pupil's Edition. New York: William H. Sadlier, 1893

     Many adverbs end in the suffix -ly. (But not every word that ends in -ly is an adverb. Think of friendly.) 
     The suffixes -ward, -ern, -erly, denote direction; as, north, northward, northern, northerly. Note that -ern creates adjectives, and "-ward" creates words that can function as either adjectives or adverbs: They sailed northward. They sailed into a northward wind.

Give an adverb related to each of the following:

wind windward bright brightly
neat _______________ humble _______________
fierce _______________ swift _______________
side _______________ awkward _______________
fearless _______________ playful _______________
easy _______________ west _______________
back _______________ gloomy _______________
hopeful _______________ cross _______________
