    absolutely絕對地,完全地(正面的肯定)

    He is absolutely right.

    definitely明確地,很肯定地(清楚的知道)

    I definitely will go for it.

    totally完全地(沒有意見就是附和)

    I totally agree with you.

    actually實際上地(真實上有看到或者聽見,但並不表示一定知道)

    I actually have no idea.

    certainly沒有疑問地,確定地

    I certainly will go for it.

    其實這五個字可以相互運用,但這中間actually是屬於比較實質上有看見或聽見才會用

    absolutely 和 definitely 、 certainly以及totally都用在附和別人的意見或質疑別人的做法使用

    或者是自己意見上的加強語氣

    我自己在國外使用

    有時候附和別人時候都會用absolutely、definitely、certainly做相當簡短的一個字回答。

    totally也可以,但是基本上用這個字的時候會是完整的句子。

    absolutely = completely; used for emphasis

    definitely = without any doubt; used for emphasizig that you mean yes

    totally = complete; used for saying that you really agree with soething that someone said

    actually = used for emphasizing what is really true or what really happened; used for emphasizing that somethign is surprising; used when correcting what someone has said or thinks, or what you yourself have said; used for admitting something

    certainly = used for emphasizing that something is definitely true or will definitely happen; used for expressing agreement or giving permission

    以上都是字典裡所寫的(Macmillan English Dictionary for Advanced Learners, New Edition 2007),裡面有例句可以參考。

    字義會隨著時間而改變。

    所以,還是自己查新版的英英字典比較可靠,網上的道聽途說,有時會誤導你的。

    [absolutely]

    absolutely sure?真的, 確定?

    absolutely delicious. 真的好吃.

    Absolutely not. 口語說: 絕不. (那是不可能的事).

    [definitely]

    without any doubt. 確信, 不用懷疑.

    Definitely not........我確定不..........

    [totally]

    完完全全

    totally new language. 完全是新的語言.

    [actually]

    其實,事實上.

    在口語常用.

    I've known Peter for years. Since we were children, actually.

    其實(事實上),我們小時後........

    [certainly]

    這和definitely用法幾乎一樣

    在口語常用.

    當同意別人看法時就說: Certainly.

    當不同意別人看法時就說: Certainly not !
