Synonyms of "Surprisingly" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre surprisingly e notably e amazingly e remarkably ?
A: 驚くべきことに feels like an awkward translation for “remarkably”. For example you could say, “She’s remarkably quiet for someone her age.”, in that case it means something closer to “so unusual that it stands out to observers.”

If we go back to that example sentence there’s a difference in nuance between “remarkably” and “surprisingly”.

“Remarkably, he was promoted after only three months.” = The speaker is emphasising that this is an unusual accomplishment or event. It sounds like the person who was promoted did a really good job.

“Surprisingly, he was promoted after only three months.” = The speaker is emphasising how shocking or unexpected it was that this person was promoted so quickly.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre surprisingly e amazingly ?
A: Thank you very much for explaining the differences so clearly!
Q: Qual é a diferença entre surprisingly e unexpectedly ?
A: They mean they same only surprisingly has a positive connotation so it’s ‘in your favor’ that something happened
Q: Qual é a diferença entre surprisingly e lo and behold ?
A: Lo and behold is an expression that stands more or less alone. You might say this at the beginning of the sentence:
Lo and behold, he has finally arrived!
It is a bit older sounding, so people often use it formally or ironically. In the example above, this would be a bit sarcastic. Maybe we were waiting for a long time, and "look, he finally gets here." It's not really a surprise, but a comment more like "oh look finally!"
It can also show an element of surprise, but it's not usually used that way in the USA.


Surprisingly is an adverb that needs to be used with the verb, or at the beginning of the sentence.
He was surprisingly punctual.
Surprisingly, he arrived on time.
There is a feeling of real surprise.
