direct or directly?
I go directly to the Airport. or: I go direct to the Airport?
Both direct and directly are adverbs: the latter being 'of time or place'. Direct is most often used in the sense of communicating 'without intermediaries' e.g. I will contact you direct. If you say, I will contact you directly, it means 'right away'.
'Direct' can be an adjective as in the above answer, but the usage is unusual. 'Straightforward' would be clearer. 'Direct' insult e.g. a 'slap in the face' sounds right. Idiom is everything in language, colloquial or otherwise.
