Hi, can anybody please help me with the word 'admittedly'? The thing is, according to some dictionaries it may mean either 'by general admission/confession' (as has been admitted) or 'by personal admission' (it must be admitted, I admit that... etc.) So I wonder if there are any criteria to distinguish between the two (depending on the word's position in the sentence etc.) In particular, which meaning is implied here: 'an admittedly inadequate treatment'? Thank you in anticipation.
