Specially Vs Especially

Specially Vs Especially


Several times, when we start writing English sentences in which words are similar in pronunciation but have different meanings.

So let’s take an example of especially or especially to show you the difference.

Specially Vs Especially!

Specially and especially both can be used to mean, “particularly” or “exclusive.”

But have you ever thought what’s the difference between both the words?

Let me tell you,

Specially is used for Contigential discussion or informal words, whereas, an especially is used for regular discussion or more formal words.

Specially is adverb form which means, “particular” or “exclusive” in a distinct way for a “particular purpose” or “above all.”


• I cooked this delicious food specially for you.
• This car is specially for Reena.

The above examples show about, “something is better for someone.”

Especially is an adverb that signalizes something is more special or much better as compared to other things. Especially means, “exceptional” or “particular.”


• I especially gave this task to you to make your work better.
• I especially invite you for dinner night.

The above example shows that “something stands out more special on comparing from others.”

Are you specially and especially interchangeable?

Both the word specially or especially is adverbs and mostly interchangeable.

Both means, “particular” or “exclusive” but there is a slight difference in it.

Especially is used to reveal something more special, something greater than others.

For example-

• Tina loves especially dogs.

This means-Tina loves pet animals, but she loves dogs more as compared to other animals.

• Mark loves to read especially romantic novels.

This means-Mark loves to read all types of novels but particularly romantic novels.

Have you ever thought it is especially replaceable?

Yes, of course, we can replace especially with more special, most special words, etc.

In the English dictionary, there are several English words in which words are similar in pronunciation but have different meanings.

We just need to justify all of them to correct our English grammar.
