    Wink Two questions about vocabulary and grammar.

    Hi.
    I have two questions, everyone please answer it for me!
    1: What are the differences between "tip" and "trick"?
    2: Is the grammar correct in the sentence "If i ever commit suicide i'd kill you first" (I think the grammar is wrong) ?
    Thank everyone very much!

    Please ask unrelated questions in different threads, and give each a meaningful title such as Tip and trick.

    There are so many differences between these words that it would be hard to find their similarities.

    Ask again if you have any specific problems with their use.

    An eye-catching and interesting title for your second question would be If I ever commit suicide.

    Note that I is always capitalised.

    Sorry, maybe you're a little mistaken, but it is "committed", not "commited".

    I'd like to ask about their meaning "an effective way of doing something", e.g. what are the differences between two sentences: "I'll give you some tips" and "I'll give you some tricks".
    Thanks in advance!
