|Assunto:||preferably or preferentially?|
It is my understanding that preferable refers to the desirability of one thing/person/action over another, but preferential refers to special privieges or decisions given to one thing/person/action over another.
I see beer as preferable to cachaça.
If I were buying liquor, I would give preference to beer.
Does that make sense to you?
