1>Mahatma Gandhi was truly a great man
If somebody says I have got job . we say really? but not truly?
we say the question paper is reallydifficult but not truly difficult.
Is Mahatma Gandhi really the Father of the nation?
Is Mahatma Gandhi truly the Father of the nation?
we usually say the first sentence. I think it is more a matter of usage and intuition.
But I feel they are almost the same but not exactly the same.
I think there is a difference between truly and really.
I have searched on the internet to find the difference and I attach the link which explains the difference.But I am not satisfied with the answers.
What exactly is the difference between truly and really and how they can be used in speech and writing?
