    Re: different

    Although some consider ‘different than’ incorrect or informal, they are both used in AmE. Use ‘different from’ when you compare directly between two things or persons. I am different from you, for example. Use ‘different than’ when the object is a full clause. This place looks so different than it was 30 years ago, for example. The safer bet is to use ‘different from’ if you not sure.
