Synonyms of "Recently" and their differences

Q: recently ve these days arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "Recently" means the close past/ not to long ago.

e.g "I already saw that movie quite recently."
"Recently, the ocean has been rising faster and faster."

"These days" is now as a timeframe depending on context. It could be compared to ancient times, a generation ago, 10 years ago ect.

e.g "You have been acting different these days."
"These days, society doesn't need to work as hard as when I was a teenager."
"Even though we thought we would be friends forever, these days, we hardly talk."
Q: recently ve lately arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Lately and recently basically mean the same thing.

Examples:

"I been getting a lot of texts recently."

"I have been getting a lot of thefts lately."

They can usually be used the same way.

If you need more examples just let me know.

Q: recently ve these days arasındaki fark nedir?
A: If you just say "recently" alone without specifying how recent, then it's assumed that the event(s) happened not too long ago; perhaps a week, a month, maybe a year (but not usually for periods extending beyond that).

Even if you specify how recent, the event still has to be relatively close in temporal (time) proximity to now, otherwise it will sound strange/wrong.

For example, you would never say "Recently, about 15 years ago, I went to a shop and bought a purple dress". There is a "soft" (not well defined) limit on how far back "recently" goes, and if you go beyond that limit, it just sounds wrong.

In contrast, "these days" is a very relative term. If I say "these days people often wear t-shirts", maybe I'm comparing the past three decades to the many decades before that (e.g. a hundred years ago) when people did not wear t-shirts. It's all about the context, and the scale can vary drastically (from a few years up to perhaps 1000 years).

Similar to how "recently" has a "soft" maximum limit, "these days" has a "soft" minimum limit. You cannot compare this month to last month and refer to this month as "these days", that is much too short of a period.

In general, there must have been a major cultural or fashion shift that has taken place before you can compare "these days" in the present to "those days" in the past.

So it would be appropriate to compare the 2010s ("these days") to the 1990s ("those days"), but not "these days" to 2015, 2014, or even 2013. I would generally suggest periods longer than a decade (ten years).
Q: recently ve currently arasındaki fark nedir?
A: 'Recently' can be used for things that have been happening not too long ago (past tense), and also may still be happening, or can happen some more
A lot of people have been wearing red recently

'Currently' describes something that is happening now (present tense)
Red is currently the trend
Q: recently ve lately arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Meaning wise both are same as 最近, but grammatically they are a bit different. In a sentence both recently and lately can be used to indicate a repeated event or ongoing event.

Example: 'I have been attending a lot of weddings lately/recently. '
Both are ok.

However lately cannot be used for a singular event for example:
'My cousin got married recently' is correct.
But 'My cousin got married lately' is incorrect.

Basically lately can only be used for something repeatable or continuous. But recently can be used for both singular event or repeated events.
