What is the difference between especially and specially in English?
"especially" and "specially" are both adverbs.
We use "especially" to describe one person, thing, or situation that is above all the others.
The meaning is similar to "in particular"
Example: I like all of my friends, especially Mark.
"specially" on the other hand describes the specific (particular) purpose of something.
Example: The bag was specially designed for my computer.
