Tambien, por la diccionario, 'rapidamente' y 'los antes posible'.

But 'rapido' is the one I actually see being used, so far.

Probablemente el más apropiado sea "rápido": "el carro va despacio o rápido?". Decir "¿el carro va despacio o rápidamente?" sería entendible pero no es lo más apropiado. Tal vez el antónimo más apropiado para "rápidamente" sería "lentamente". En cuanto a "lo antes posible" es el equivalente a "as soon as possible".

Despacio has two antonyms with little nuances:

· Rápido/rápidamente = Quickly, using little time.

· Deprisa = Fast.


EXAMPLES:

· Tus amigos vinieron rápido. (Your friends came quickly; in few minutes since we called them)

· Tus amigos vinieron deprisa. (Your friends came fast; they were running fast, or in a very fast car...)

Oh, nice. That's very usefully nuanced. That makes 'rápido' more like English 'promptly'. Interesting. Thank you!
