Here are a few examples. These words can be somewhat interchangeable depending on the context. Let me know if you need more clarification. He was not adequately dressed for the cold weather and froze during the game. (You could also use appropriately or properly in this sentence). John was appropriately dressed for the wedding. (Can also use properly) She accurately guessed the lottery numbers and won $2000. This is exactly what I needed. (Can also use precisely) Mary correctly answered all the questions on the exam.

Riley, thank you for answering to me. I should have traced those words to their own origins.

This, however, does not adequately represent the Hebrew. Accurately is like to do it right like “i accurately shot the arrow at the target.” Exactly is talking about a special amount. “There were exactly 15 people at the park.” Correctly means right. “My voice didn’t heal correctly.” Properly is doing something the right way. “You have to comb your hair back to do it properly.” Precisely is a fancier version of exactly.”
