A: "Most likely" implies a stronger hint that the particular thing will happen.

For example: "She will most likely win the race." (Most likely here is used because there is more certainty that she will win the race, provided she's trained hard enough or is trying hard enough).

"She will probably win the race." Implies an uncertainty, where there is more of a 50/50 chance but we still hope she will win. It has a weaker connotation towards the event actually happening rather than "most likely."

Translations of "Most"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Most of her stationery are hand-her-downs from her older sister.
A: This is a tough question even for a native speaker haha! Since the rest of the sentence takes the plural form, "stationary" can take the pural form, which would be "stationaries." This isn't a commonly used word but in this context it makes the most sense.

The correct word is "hand-me-downs" regardless of what they are or who they came from. (Example: All I have to wear are hand-me-downs from my older brother.)

So the correct sentence would be: Most of her stationaries are hand-me-downs from her older sister. You could also write: Most of her stationary was handed down by her older sister. Same meaning and stationary can take the singular form, I think.

Hard question! Hopefully other native speakers will chime in and help too.
