    потрясающий vs. потрясающе

    потрясающий - tremendous, staggering, stupendous
    потрясающе - appallingly

    How does this work? I assume потрясающий denotes something positive while потрясающе refers to something negative.
    Кому - нары, кому - Канары.

    потрясающе doesn't have only a negative connotation. It can be translated as stunningly or overwhelmingly

    It means that this dictionary sucks. figuratively.
    For the meaning, see 'потрясать' -
    2) перен. ... stun, amaze, astound
    and form adjectives and adverbs on your choice.
