Please explain the difference between "especially" and "specially" and give examples on how to use each of them.
The word "specially" means for a special purpose.
Example: This project has specially designed bridal dress for Indian women.
(In the above sentence, specially has a distinctive purpose)
The word "especially" means any situation over all the others.
Example: He did especially well in the English test.
(In the above sentence, especially means a noteworthy performance by him)
I hope this helps.
