    Question Difference between 'specially' and 'especially'

    What's the difference between these two words? I know they're both adverbs and they both mean 'particularly.' However, are there any differences, like, in the way they're used?

    Re: Difference between 'specially' and 'especially'

    Hi, Shuja,
    Specially = for a particular purpose.
    The car is designed specially for disabled people.
    Especially = particularly (used for emphasis)
    The sunni triangle north-west of Baghdad is considered especially dangerous.
    Cheers
