    'Seek' and 'Seek for'

    Should I say 'seek relief' or 'seek for relief'?

    Meantime,what's the difference between 'relief' and 'comfort' when they are nouns?


    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    You seek relief.
    Have you checked the various dictionary definitions for the nouns "relief" and "comfort"? What do you think the differences are?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And while you're there, you could brush up on the meaning of 'meantime'.

    Re: 'Seek' and 'Seek for'

    Is 'meanwhile' or 'in the meanwhile' correct here?

    Thanks a lot!

    You didn't need to use any such phrase. You are not asking us to answer one question while we think about the other one. You could simply have said "Also, what's the difference ..."
