Synonyms of "Fully" and their differences

...to check my facts.

Providing examples was the easy part.

Fully can be used neutrally, just stating a fact, where utterly would often be used when it's to do with something not measurable - e.g. emotion or physical energy.

In some circumstances, you could also use absolutely, completely, totally for fully
and perhaps unconditional for outright.

They all have special uses where the other ones are not used. Comparing their different etymologies and alternative meanings would help give you a more detailed feeling for their usage. (I don't want to copy the content out of the links above and paste it here)

The alternative meanings of a word can influence whether we use it in a particular case because of its possible connotations.

e.g. to be killed outright (in an accident or similar) means to be killed immediately.
Q: What is the difference between fully and completely ?
A: nothing. Fully = completely, and both are common
Q: What is the difference between fully and perfectly and completely ?
A: It really depends on the sentence, sometimes they all mean the same thing but in another context one may not fit. A restaurant could say "We're fully booked" or "We're completely booked" but we wouldn't use perfectly in that case.

I could say "I'm fully aware", "I'm completely aware" or "I'm perfectly aware" and they all mean the same thing and they're all correct. So it just depends on usage.
