Incorrect spelling, explanation: this spelling is a mistake since the word lacks one additional -l. The regular way of creating an adverb is based on adding the suffix -ly to the end of its root – the adjective. In this case, it’s the word oral. Oral + ly must be spelled orally, therefore
oraly is an incorrect spelling and the correct one is orally.
Correct spelling, explanation: this word is a combination of the adjective oral and the ending -ly, which is necessary to form an adverb. -Ly is a common adverbial suffix. When creating a derivative, always remember to look at its root. If you add -ly to the final, you get a word spelled orally.
Oraly is just a mistake.
