The differences between 尤其 and 特别

Today we will have a look at the differences between 尤其 and 特别.

Language points

The adverb 尤其 indicates a further degree. 我们之前还学过“特别”,Both of them can indicate a very salient aspect in the whole or in comparison with others. They are usually used in the latter part of a sentence. For example:

我非常喜欢画画儿,尤其/特别是中国画。

表示这个意思时,“尤其”can be followed by “是”,“是” can also be omitted; but “特别”is usually followed by“是”。For example:

我非常喜欢画画儿,尤其中国画。

我非常喜欢画画儿,特别是中国画。

When 特别 is used as an adverb, it may also mean “especially” or “very”,“尤其” cannot. For example:

那个电影讲的是一个爱情故事,很浪漫,让人特别感动。

今天的节目特别吸引人。

特别 can be used as an adjective,indicating “different from the rest” or “not common”,while 尤其 cannot. For example:

如果您有什么特别的要求可以和我联系。

这件衣服的样子很特别,我非常喜欢。
