    Difference between specially and especially

    Hi again,

    i'd like to know the difference usage of specially and especially.

    They have the same meaning ?

    Thanks in advance,
    Nandar

    Use the search button, many of us ask the same questions again and again.

    These two words can often have the same meaning. But especially is often used before prepositions and conjunctions.
    e.g I drink a lot of tea, especially in summer
    I improve my English especially when I communicate with native speakers.

    And specially is often used with past participle.
    e.g. This party was specially arranged for his birthday.

    Sorry, Nandar,
    The link doesn't work indeed, I don't know why.

    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
