    Default Commercially speaking Vs commercial speaking

    What is the difference between commercially speaking and commercial speaking?
    Do they have the same meaning or different meaning?
    Which one is correct to use or normally used (if they have the same meaning)?

    Thank you.
    Best regards, Piak.

    I am unfamiliar with either commercially speaking or commercial speaking However, commercial speech means (to me) things like marketing and advertising.


    I hope that helps.

    In BE, 'commercially speaking' would be used to refer to whether a project, etc, made sense financially or in other business terms. 'Commercial speak' is used to refer to the way business people speak, and is generally used negatively.

    Hi, :D. If you were commercially speaking you would be using phrases, terms and words that are of concern and related to the world of commerce or business. e.g. "Market trends are on the up." "Buy low sell high." "The bulls are to the fore." This would be described, in some parts of the English speaking world as "commercial speak". Your other expression Commercial speaking as a phrase or term does not seem to be in common use.

    Welcome to the forums.

    As clearly stated above, it means that the discussion is concerned with a project, etc, made sense financially or in other business terms.
