in a sincere and heartfelt manner;
"I would dearly love to know"
at a great cost;
"he paid dearly for the food"
"this cost him dear"
"she loved him dearly"
"he treats her affectionately"
- She loved him dearly.
- She loves her motherland as dearly as she loves her mother.
- The amber necklace costs dearly.
- He paid dearly for his careless slip.
My father hated his father dearly.出自：As You Like It , Shakespeare
He would dearly have liked a pint now himself.出自： A. Price
