- For Teachers
I want to give an assignment to my children to write a short story. I've given them a topic "Magic Banana". Now, I'm confused whether it should be magic bananas or magical bananas.
On the other hand, "Magic Banana[s]" allows a wider range of interpretation than merely the magical.
The thought of a 'magic banana' leaves me cold! While a 'magical banana' opens all kinds of vivid images and possibilities! You decide!
I'm not convinced that there is an actual difference here:
magic, the quality of being enchanting
Both are good. My vote, though, would be for "magical" because it sounds more enchanting.
