    Default Difference between these words

    1) Tartan and plaid

    2) Committed and partnered

    Can someone tell me what is the difference between the above vocabulary? I want to use them more accurately.

    Thank you.

    I'm not a native nor a teacher but since I saw no reply on this post I decided to share what I know about this.

    1) Tartan vs. plaid: Nowadays they are often used interchangeably. Based on the context, they may refer to the cloth with plaid pattern or to the pattern itself.
    Please, look them up on online Cambridge and Merriam-Webster dictionaries. I didn't post the links here because then my reply might not get published.

    2) Committed may have several meanings but considering your question, in here:

    Committed
    means performed/done.
    Partnered means became a partner of.

    Example: This company partnered with that company and committed years of careful researches.

    * In many cases "to commit" is used for an illegal or immoral action; for example: committing suicide.
