The changing English language

I’ve recently noticed that language is making a quantum leap in the US or at least on US TV shows. So many times I’ve heard “You did great” or “You did brilliant” on US reality shows, from all kinds of different people, that I wonder if adverbs are going to disappear from the US sometime soon.

It sounds so strange to hear people dropping “ly”, but language changes – there’s no “correct” way of communicating in English (thank goodness – that’s something the French could learn!).
