specially or especially?

I’d like to know if there is any difference between specially and especially, when I can use them. Thanks for your answer.


When you want to give a typical thing or person out of a group, use especially at the beginning or middle of the sentence with appropriate punctuation. Use specially to mean exactly the same thing as exact but in the role of an adverb instead of an adjective.


When I was young I would have liked to join special forces.
Now I am sure I was mistaken especially when thinking they always do the right things.

I am not asking you anything special.
I like women, especially blondes.

Any grammar mistakes?


They’re grammatically correct.
Whether they actually mean what you expect them to mean is impossible to say without context.
