Undoubtedly vs undoubtably
‘Undoubtably’ is often used to mean ‘without doubt’ or to refer to something that can’t possibly be doubted. While ‘undoubtably’ is somewhat common in everyday speech, it’s not accepted as a real word by most dictionaries and is best avoided in formal or academic writing. Instead, use undoubtedly.
