Specially and Especially

Specially and Especially :



In most contexts “specially” is more common than “especially,” but when you mean “particularly” “especially” works better:


“I am not especially excited about inheriting my grandmother’s neurotic Siamese cat.”


“Especial” in the place of “special” is very formal and rather old-fashioned.
