Question about a letter in the Simplified manual

Just a quick question… In lesson 25, letter 227, something confuses me. There’s an outline that I didn’t recognise in the sentence “What’s true of our personal lives is ____ true of our business relationships.” I interpreted it at first as “usually”, and I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s supposed to be (it’s written as [use]-ly”), but I know that ‘usually’ is written as [usual]-e. In fact, I looked up what e-u-l-e means and it means “uselessly”, which makes little sense in this context.

Is this a mis-write on the part of the author, or am I not interpreting it correctly?

Thanks 🙂

  1. That's what it is, as Chuck clarified. The "-ual" thing still throws me sometimes, though "-ure" doesn't ever. Weird. I find that it if, for example, I learn something new in lesson 20, it's easy by 22 and internalised by 24. That's how it's been with most things, except -ual 😛
