    Re: likely

    The chances are good, if the conditions are right.

    "likely" means 'probably'.... a more than 50 % chance of happening

    thanks! :) what about the difference in context between these two sentences:

    I will likely live abroad again / I will live abroad again

    thanks

    Do you mean what about the difference in meaning? (we can't know any context unless you give us context)

    How do you think "likely" changes the meaning?
