Incorrect spelling

hopefuly

Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is wrong, because the base adjective is hopeful, so after adding adverbial suffix -ly, we receive hopefully. As you can see consonant l doubles, because the adjective ends with the same letter as the suffix starts with. Therefore hopefuly is incorrect, and hopefully is the correct spelling.


Correct spelling

hopefully

Correct spelling, explanation: hopefully is an adverb from the adjective hopeful. To create an adverb we must add suffix -ly to an adjective. Therefore hopeful + -ly is hopefully – with double l. Hopefuly is a mistaken spelling, as the correct form has got two l’s.

adverb, in a manner full of hope
