Hello,

is it correct to say "fortunately" in this sentence?

The building was neglected for many years but fortunately it's being restored now.

Or is it better to say "luckily"? And is its position in the sentence correct?

Thank you.

    "Fortunately" looks fine to me in that sentence, Arcona. I can't think of a better position for 'fortunately' than the one you used. I'd like to see a comma after 'years' in the sentence.

    I think "fortunately" is better than "luckily" in your sentence. I'm not a big fan of "luckily".
