La confusión entre specially y especially


Especially  y specially son adverbios. Y no siempre se usan correctamente. Hoy os explicamos la diferencia.


  • Especially means ‘particularly’ or ‘above all’:

           She loves flowers, especially roses.

           I am especially grateful to all my family and friends who supported me. Not: Especially I am


  • We use specially to talk about the specific purpose of something:

           This kitchen was specially designed to make it easy for a disabled person to use.

           He has his shirts made specially for him by a tailor in London.

           Especially can also be used to mean ‘for a particular purpose’:

           I bought these (e)specially for you.
