    lightly 和 slightly 同樣有輕微, 少少的意思, 但 slightly 通常會用在比較事物的性況, 用來加強所比較事物的意思, 是一個助話詞, 如:

    John is slightly taller than Tommy.

    約翰比湯美高少少。

    My salary is slightly less than yours.

    我的薪酬比你的少一點。

    而 lightly 則是一個形容動詞, 主要是形容一個動作, 如:

    Please walk lightly in the library.

    請在圖書館內放輕腳步。

    Do not take this matter lightly, it is more serious than you think.

    不要輕視這件事情, 它比你所想像的嚴重。

    lightly 亦可用來加強形容詞 (adjective) 的意思, 如:

    Cook the chicken in the oven until it is lightly brown.

    將雞用焗爐烤至微啡色 (lightly brown)。
