    Specially And Especially

    According to OALD,

    Especially usually means particularly, so it doesn't come first in a sentence.
    eg : She loves all sports, especially swimming.
    I especially likes sweet things.(Not Especially I like sweet things.)

    Specially usually means for a particular purpose and is often followed by a past participle.
    eg The ring was specially made for her. (Not The ring was especially made for her.)
    or : a specially designed diet plan

    In BrE, especially & specially are often used in the same way but specially is less formal.


    Apart from the points mentioned above, I think we can base on another one that is specially refers to the manner in which something is done but especially doesn't . For example
    a soap specially designed for those with sensitive skins means : that soap is designed with a special manner and it is only for those with sensitive skins.
