The Difference between Presently Currently and Momentarily

Presently may mean “immediately” or “soon,” and in modern usage it has come to mean “now”; careful writers choose a more precise term. Currently means “now” and causes no problems. But momentarily is another ambiguous term, strictly meaning “lasting for a moment” but loosely meaning “in a moment.”
