Grammar Training: Formally versus Formerly


The words 'formally' and 'formerly' are different. Why?

Formally - means officially; with proper etiquette

For example: She was formally introduced to the CEO after concluding the application process.


Formerly - in the past; in earlier times

For example: The new space, formerly owned by Company X, will be renovated this week.
