Some people object to the use of hopefully as a synonym for the phrase `it is hoped that' in a sentence such as hopefully I'll be able to attend the meeting. This use of the adverb first appeared in America in the 1960s, but it has rapidly established itself elsewhere. There are really no strong grounds for objecting to it, since we accept other sentence adverbials that fulfil a similar function, for example unfortunately, which means `it is unfortunate that' in a sentence such as unfortunately I won't be able to attend the meeting.
