Especially or Specially? What’s the difference?
August 12, 2015
o adverb 1 in particular. 2 to a great extent; very much.
o adverb for a special purpose.
– USAGE The words especially and specially are not interchangeable, although both can mean ‘particularly’. Only especially means ‘in particular’, as in he despised them all, especially Thomas, and only specially means ‘for a special purpose’, as in the car was specially made for the occasion.
