Difference between 早速 & すぐ

Hi guys ~
I need some help here T^T
Can anyone tell me what is the difference between these two, although they both mean quickly?
My teacher mentioned that the "consideration time" for two is different, one is longer and one is shorter.
I referred to the notes I copied down during her lesson and realised I could not understand it!
(and tmr is my exam ... )
So any Japanese experts can help me?
: D
If possible, I might ask some more questions regarding grammar here ...

Re: Difference between 早速 & すぐ

hi wangzi,

this is an interesting topic, and i thought of it for a while and decided to consult the internet

well, i found some answers on chiebukuro yahoo (their version of yahoo answers)

here's reference #1:

the difference between すぐ and 早速 is the time period involved; in すぐ u will do the action without delay and for 早速 there is time in between what u said and the action u will do (its nuance is somewhat similar to まもなく in that case, but i assume the time period in it is lesser than まもなく)

for example:

ur boss tells u, "You're needed in the meeting now!"

you would reply with, "I'll be there without delay!" rather than "I'll be there soon!"; the former uses すぐ and the latter, 早速 and naturally u will use the former because u want to show ur boss that u have a sense of urgency

in comparison, u have a friend who asks u out for lunch, and tells u the lunch discount will be over soon

u can reply with either すぐ行きましょう! or 早速行きましょう!because there isnt really a super sense of urgency

reference #2:

すぐ has a nuance that u wish to do the action involved but 早速 doesnt show that nuance (in the case of previous example, the nuance of すぐ might also show u wish to do the given action)

for example,

妹が病気だったので、すぐに医者へ連れて行った。(shows a sense of wanting to do the accompanying)

the same thing goes for actions related to happiness or expectation

my opinion is 早速 tends to appear more commonly in keigo and has a somewhat lack of urgency compared to すぐ and it is a sort of 'delayed action' adverb for the meaning of 'immediately/soon'; honestly, i didnt know this subtle difference until i checked the net...thought sassoku was plainly keigo and sugu was more direct and sometimes informal

u might get a better idea when reading japanese itself so here are the original references i've found (and summarised):

「敬体」と「常体」を混ぜて書かないほうがいいですよね。

「誰か」に訂正されちまうっすからwww
