    Default Re: partly and partially

    ***Not a teacher***

    From The World English Dictionary:

    "usage Partly and partially are to some extent interchangeable, but partly should be used when referring to a part or parts of something: the building is partly (not partially ) of stone, while partially is preferred for the meaning to some extent: his mother is partially (not partly ) sighted"
