    Hello friends !

    I want to know the difference (if there's one) between these two words.
    Is there one more colloquial than other ?.... one more british (or US) than other ?
    In what situation each one of these words is it the most appropriate ?

    thanks for your answers !

    Différence assez importante : contrairement à probably, likely est un adjectif...

    Something is likely to happen (It will probably happen)
