Home TEFL forum Grammar & Vocabulary particularly vs in particular
Could you please tell me the difference between particularly and in particular?
The meaning is similar. However, they are usually used slightly differently:
We usually put in particular after the word that it refers to:
– I like all types of tea, but Earl Grey in particular.
We usually put particularly before the word it refers to:
– I like all types of tea, particularly Earl Grey.
