Adjectives as adverbs

A while before I found Textkit, I came across a note in Wheelock that said adjectives sometimes have adverbial strength or power or some related word. I translated the indicated adjectives as adverbs in English. Is this correct, or is there some other way to translate them?

Smyth Auction

FYI..

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... eName=WDVW

Smyth's Greek Grammar comes up for auction only about 5 times a year. I bet it'll sell somewhere in the mid 30s price range. Worth it if the book is in good condition.
