    The difference

    Hello teachers,

    Please tell me the difference between the following pairs of words:

    1-Especially/Specially
    2-Eventually/enduecourse (I can't find a word like this in my dictionary, so if you know the correct spelling please tell me)

    3-Ground/ Grounds

    4-Land/territory

    Thanks in advance.

    Territory-land or sometimes sea, which is considered as belonging to or connected with a particular country or person.

    Land- the surface of the Earth that is not covered by water or
    an area of ground, especially when used for a particular purpose such as farming or building.
    Land can also be a country.

    They are similar in meaning. Context is master.

    Eventually= in the end, especially after a long time or a lot of effort, problems:

    It might take him ages but he'll do it eventually.

    Did you mean "in due course"? If so, it means:at a suitable time in the future.

    You will receive notification of the results in due course.

    Does it make sense?
