hopefully In sense 2, hopefully is called a -sentence adverb-, because it qualifies the whole sentence and not just one word or phrase in it: Hopefully, it was all over now and he'd be able to take a spot of leave. There are many sentence adverbs, eg clearly, honestly, really, thankfully, undoubtedly, usually , etc, as you will see in these examples: Clearly, fact and fiction became intermingled. I've honestly no idea. Well, it isn't a lot, really. Thankfully, at weekends Clare felt almost normal again. Most of these uses pass unnoticed, but for some reason many people dislike this use of hopefully. It may have something to do with its meaning (with its suggestion of likely disappointment) and the fact that it is originally North American. It is not usually ambiguous, except in rare cases like the following (where intonation usually clarifies): They were hopefully attempting a reconciliation. Recommendation: avoid it if you are talking to someone who is likely to be precise about the use of language.
