almost = nearly is an adverb "I was almost awake when he came in° most forms the superlative; means very and in some cases is almost: "most everyone agrees" mostly: adverb means largely or generally


Take the following examples, 1, San Francisco's most booked restaurants 2, San Francisco's almost booked restaurants 3, San Francisco's mostly booked restaurants. Now, the first phrase conveys a statistical result , the second implies that those restaurants are not booked , whilst the third suggests that the restaurants are in the process of being booked, and the process is nearly finished.
