    Default Difference between "Caution" and "Warning"

    Hi, could you please explain, what is the difference between "Caution" and "Warning" (for example if there is such caption in dangerous place)?
    Thanks!

    The word "Caution" is an imperative, meaning "Be careful" and is, in itself, a warning. The word can appear on its own without any explanation and the reader should just be careful.
    The word "Warning" will normally have some more information under it, explaining what it is nearby which is dangerous or similar.
