1. controversial

Today we are going to learn “controversial”. It means causing a lot of disagreement, because many people have strong opinions about the subject being discussed.
eg:
(1) I realize my saying this is controversial and differs from what we hear from mainstream news sources.
(2) Sebastian Gorka, a controversial security adviser to President Trump, will be leaving the White House.

2. markedly

Another word is “markedly”. It means in a clearly noticeable manner.
eg:
(1) The relations between our two countries have improved markedly in every aspect.
(2) The number of migrants crossing into the U.S. has dropped markedly since President Trump took office.
