@Dono - yes, there is no solution on that page. I want to find if there is a solution other than on that page.

comment What is the correct romanization of イー?
yes, like ろうそく is romanized as rōsoku, but this is a different case, because しいたけ is romanized as shiitake.

@snailplane The page I linked to does not say anything about イー, I don't think.

comment What is the correct romanization of イー?
The "loanword" section of the Wikipedia article you point me to is completely unreferenced, so it could just be a speculation on the part of whoever wrote it.

あか meanings are from あかるい. I think it's the same origin, and then got bent to mean "red".

comment What's the difference between the constructs (adverb) なる[naru] and (adverb)する[suru]?
@Chocolate: this is an ill-chosen example I think. The question seems to be about adverbs so I used a different adverb in my answer.
