What is the difference between supposedly and supposably? Both are real words but seem to have confusingly similar definitions.

The 'supposedly or supposably' argument never gets old. Both are adverbs formed from adjectives. And supposable is an adjective you probably never heard of. My tip is simple, learn the definition of those adjectives and you'll never make these mistakes ever again.
