What is the difference, in language between apparently and allegedly?

Below is the recommendation and reference answer for question "What is the difference, in language between apparently and allegedly?" It was collected and sorted by the editor of this site but not sure the answer is entirely accurate.

Apparently means you're judging by appearance.
Allegedly means judging by an accusation somebody made.

i guess apparently is wen u think it has happened n allegedly is wen sum1 has charged of it happening or sum1 has deliberately done it

Apparently means it is clear that it happened. Allegedly means that it is claimed to have happened.

Apparently means obviously.

Allegedly means to assert to be true without proving.

Apparently is what that appears obvious to the onlooker and allegedly is what is said to be (by others).

ALLEGEDLY means claimed but not yet proven to have taken place, have been committed, or be as described.

APPARENTLY means according to what seems to be the case but may not actually be so.

Apparently implies a deduction. It means "I conclude that". For example. Apparently, the guy lying motionless in the street is dead. It is apparent that the guy is dead. It appears that the guy is dead.
Allegedly, on ther hand, is a preliminary statement. It implies that no conclusion has been reached. An allegation is like an accusation. For example. Allegedly, the woman kneeling next to the body, murdered him. This adverb is used to say "it has been stated but not yet proven that".

I hope this helps.
