    Cool when to use the "ly" at the end of words?

    Greetings!

    English is a second language for me. The other day while reading a book I saw "this is totally right!". A couple of days after that, I was reading a magazine and saw "something totaly easy". Which one is correct?...as I am confused now... TotaLLY or totaLY?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, katia896!
    Welcome to the forum!

    I think...it must be...totally.
    I've never seen "totaly" before.

    'totaly' is a spelling mistake.
