    Smile I'm confused

    Dear teachers,
    I'm confused about the use of "specially" and "especially". Can you help me, please? Thank you very much!

    May I add 'particularly'. They have very similar meanings.

    I do not know.
    However, it could be because one is British and the other American.
    Consider it is just a guess.
