    Many thanks for your help

    Sorry but would you let me know what's the difference between
    'intentionally' and 'on purpose'

    ⓐIím doing that intentionally
    ⓑIím doing that on purpose.


    Do they have different meaning? (Because my dictionary says they have same meaning,, I guess not... )

    Yes they are basically the same in meaning as used there. Another word that could also be used is 'deliberately'.
    'I am doing that deliberately'

    The difference between intention and purpose, is that an object can also have a purpose, that is the thing which the object was designed to do. The word intention is usually only used when referring to the planned action of a person, or maybe an animal.
