ADVERBS Something; sometimes; still; than; then

Something used adverbially, like "somewhat."

“A white head and something a round belly.

We should say "a somewhat round," placing the adverb between the article and the adjective so as to show unmistakeably that the adverb qualifies the adjective. "Something" may possibly be so taken (though "somehow" would make better sense) in

“This something-settled matter in his breast.
