I know the word erractic means mearbhlach
buy how would you say erratically ?
I know one way of getting this sense is to put 'go' in front of the word , is this always true? or is there another form that only applies to some words?

thanks in advance

Scroll down to "Adverbs out of adjectives" and see if that answers your questions.
