In the first definition of the word virtually there is written:
almost [= practically]:
- Virtually all the children come to school by bus.
- He was virtually unknown before running for office.
which makes me wonder whether virtually means almost or practically, because the meaning of almost is not the same as practically, is it?
Could you explain what they mean by this?
If you will take a sentence "You'll be able to understand virtually every aspect of computing", it seems that the word virtually has no effect if it means practically because understanding is theory, not praxis, and I feel that they don't mean "understand almost every aspect" either.
Does "understand virtually" mean "be able to apply the knowledge in praxis"?
