What is difference between "lately" and "recently"?
Is there any difference between usage of these two words – lately and recently?
I have noticed few examples in the newspapers, “she’s been seen dating with him lately…”, “recent reports show that…”, etc.
Also, I have read somewhere “of late”, how do you use it?
Do you use similar words or phrases that refer to nearby past? or any time period?
