    Re: coordinate & adjust

    If you adjust something, you change it in soe way- I can adjust the volume of the music I am listening to, which would be either turning it up or down. If you coordinate things, you get them to work together in some way. If I have a number of people working on a project, I would need to ensure that they were working in such a way that they were not duplicating things, were communicating with each other, etc- this would be coordination.

    You can adjust your coordinates but you can't coordinate your adjusts
