    Smile Refuse and Deny?

    Dear all
    Could you please tell me what is the difference between "refuse" and "deny"
    Can I use them both in the same way.
    Thank you in advance.
    Best regards.

    Refuse = not allow or permit
    Deny = say you didn't do something

    Re: Refuse and Deny?

    tdol, you forgot about 'my request was denied'

    But usually deny is the opposite of admit
