Synonyms of "Firstly" and their differences

Q: firstly ve first of all arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Both "firstly" and "first of all" are used when there is a list or subsequent events. "First" is used like that as well. First/firstly/first of all I will cover idioms; second/secondly/second of all I will discuss cliches. All of these mean "in the first place" or "to begin with".
Q: firstly ve firstable ve First at all arasındaki fark nedir?
A: I think "firstable" is probably mis-heard for "first of all".

"First of all" and "Firstly" can both be used to start a sentence. They mean the same.

Firstable and "first at all" are wrong, I think.
Q: firstly ve first of all ve above all arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Firstly/first would be when someone is listing something in sequential (in order).

For example: "Firstly/First, we have to go to the store. Secondly/Second we have to go walking. Thirdly/Third, we have to get home."

First of all is also listing things, but more of like insulting, in a way.

For example: "First of all, that's a stupid idea. Second of all, go to your room."

Above all examples/ "Above of all things, we need to go."

Hope this helped 😁
