格外 (géwài) is an adverb that has the same meaning as "especially" or "particularly" in English. You might be wondering what the difference between 格外 (géwài) and 特别 (tèbié) is. Keep in mind that 特别 (tèbié) is an adjective that emphasizes a "difference " or is an adverb that expresses "especially." However, 格外 (géwài) is an adverb that only emphasizes "especially" and cannot be used in the same way that 特别 (tèbié) is used as an adjective.


格外 + verb
