Specially 和 Especially 的不同
Specially 和 Especially 的不同

这两个字用法和意义都是不同的, 跟形容词special (专门的, 非广泛的) 和especial (特别的, 非寻常的) 的不同一样.

Dictionary of English Syntax and Idiom上有很简明扼要的解释:

Specially = for one purpose and no other.

Especially = to an exceptional degree.

习惯上都把这二个字分别得清清楚楚, 不可混用.

有时在especially前加上and 或and more 的字样, 其实是不必要的.

举例如下:

I came specially to see you. (专诚拜访.)

A committee has been specially appointed to look into the matter. (专门成立一个委员会来调查那事情.)

The essays have been specially selected for the book. (专为那本书而选定的一些文章.)

The weather has been especially cold lately. (天气近来特别冷.)

Dirt carries sickness, especially the kind of sickness that is catching. (污物带来疾病, 尤其是那种有传染性的.)

Conditions are especially encouraging. (情况非常令人鼓舞.)

现把这两个字同时用在一个句子中, 以资比较:

Though the weather was especially unfavorable, they came specially for the meeting. (虽则天气特别不好, 他们还是专诚来出席会议.)

He is sorry you don’t like what he has done, especially as he did it specially for you. (他很遗憾你不喜欢他所做的, 尤其是他专门为你而做的.)
