How to use “hopefully”

An adverb, hopefully must accompany a verb. It is used to describe a state of being or feeling. When used with the verb to wait, for example, it indicates a sense of patience or anxiousness.

He waited hopefully for her flight to arrive.

Use hope with a subject to arrive at the proper sentence structure.

We hope the store will open soon. (NOT, “Hopefully the store will open soon.”)

I hope to finish the project on time.

She hopes she won’t have to file another application.
