The Difference
 
Hi everybody,
 
I tried to find the difference between "especially" and "specially". But I couldn ´t
 
reach to a satisfying result. I hope that I can have the answer here.
 
 
Thanks in advance.

According to ´ Common Mistakes at Proficiency ´by Julie Moore :
 
Especially means ´particularly´ and specially means ´for a particular purpose´:
 
I love French cheese, especially Camambert.
a car specially designed for cities
 
Sometimes can be used interchangeably :
 
I made the cake specially/especially for you.
 
Hope it helps :-)
