adv недавно, последнее время Русскому недавно соответствуют в английском языке наречия lately, recently и newly. Lately обозначает событие, которое началось незадолго до момента речи и обычно продолжается до этого момента или включает этот момент. Значение lately синонимично сочетаниям for/in the last/past few weeks (months, days):

A lot has happened in the last few weeks/lately — Многое произошло за последние несколько недель.

Have you done any painting lately? — Вы что-нибудь написали в последнее время?

I have been trying to get in touch with you lately (for the past few days) — Последнее время я пытаюсь с вами связаться.

Lately, как правило, стоит после смыслового глагола или в конце предложения:

I haven't seen him lately.

Recently может стоять в начале предложения или в середине предложения перед основным глаголом:

I've recently reread the book.

Recently a performance of this drama was renewed.

Recently и newly относят уже завершенное событие к недавнему прошлому, но не включают момента речи и синонимичны словосочетаниям a short time ago, not long ago, a little while ago (back). При этом recently имеет более широкую сочетаемость и определяют глаголы и причастия прошедшего времени.

It was only recently (a short time ago, not long ago) that he got a police warning about dangerous driving — Совсем недавно полиция его предупредила о нарушении правил езды.

Newly обычно употребляется только атрибутивно с причастиями прошедшего времени:

newly painted fence — свежевыкрашенный забор;

newly elected members — недавно избранные члены;

newly made — только что сделанный;

newly born — новорожденный.
