Why are you so heavily injured? This was a subtitle I saw in a drama I was watching, and I ask myself, Why can’t they just write: Why are you so badly (severely) injured?
I assume they pick the first word they find because heavily relates to weight so is clearly not the right word in the sentence.

Is the funeral all done? It sounded to me like it was been COOKED and it was no longer raw.
I always suggest they use of the thesaurus
