「Partly」の類語とその違い

Q: partly と partially はどう違いますか?
A: There are plenty of synonyms in English. Synonyms are words of the same meanings. In this case, 'partly' and 'partially' happen to be synonyms and carry the same meaning! Hence, you can use them interchangeably. :)
Q: partly と partially はどう違いますか?
A: In the sense of "a bit"...

Partly means "to some extent".

Partially means "not entirely".

So the basic meaning is the same but 'partially' has a sense of incompleteness.
Q: partly と partially はどう違いますか?
A: Let me say first that these two words can nearly always be used interchangeably. We will see that there may be patterns of use that favor one word over the other, but that does not mean that one word is always correct and the other incorrect in any given sentence. Also, to the native ear, partially sounds a bit more formal than partly, and sometimes the choice of partially is due to a formal or official context or a desire for a more elevated tone that has nothing to do with the meaning of the word itself.

Partially is used more often than partly to modify an adjective or past participle that names or suggests a process:
-His face was partially concealed by a beard.
-The snow had partially melted.
-Our vacation was partially paid for by the company.

Partly is used more often than partially before clauses and phrases offered as explanation:
-We trusted him partly because he was elderly.
-Partly for this reason, we decided not to buy the house.
-I called him again, partly to reassure him.

Hope that helps.
