    Re: верно, наверно, наверное, наверняка

    верно - in the meaning "maybe" it sounds a bit old and bookish
    наверно, наверное - used as "maybe"
    наверняка - mostly like "for sure"

    Раньше было "наверное" = "наверняка" (если читать Достоевского, Толстого etc)
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    I thought верно mean "true". As my teacher used to say:

    совершенно верно!
    Hei, rett norsken min og du er død.
    I am a notourriouse misspeller. Be easy on me.
    Пожалуйста! Исправляйте мои глупые ошибки (но оставьте умные)!
    Yo hablo español mejor que tú.

    It does and it's the main meaning of it. The other meaning is "probably", "most likely".
    Here's what Ozhegov dictionary sais:
    верно, вводн. сл. Должно быть, вероятно (разг.). Он, верно, не придёт.
