It doesn't sound right , but after all should be accepted (logical stress is moved somewhat).

Is wolno unique or unusual in following theverb

I guess it's after here to give more emphasis - you are writing, but you're doing it slowly. It's more neutral to put it before.

"Dlaczego piszesz(-cie) powolnie"?

Added "powolnie".

I always translate "wolno" as "free(ly)" -.-


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/isakrejda

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/polish-english/wolny translates mostly as free and only at the end is mentioned as slow but https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/polish-english/wolno is mostly slowly. Sometimes it translates as "free to" or "allowed to"

I guess it's a correct interpretation after all, added "freely".

The Polish sentence about writing slowly would be better if it used "powoli".
