    Re: respect vs aspect

    Oxford says:
    respect
    3[C] a particular aspect or detail of sth:
    In this respect we are very fortunate. There was one respect, however, in which they differed.

    aspect

    [C] a particular part or feature of a situation, an idea, a problem, etc.; a way in which it may be considered:
    The book aims to cover all aspects of city life. the most important aspect of the debate She felt she had looked at the problem from every aspect. This was one aspect of her character he hadn’t seen before.

    So here lies a problem. Aspect is a countable noun, and respect is also a count. noun, too. But what the difference in these meaning lying above?

    Ok.

    Respect is a reference to a particular thing or situation:

    In one respect, it is not hard to understand.



    Aspect = one particular feature that may be regarded:

    One aspect of the situation is that we have not failed.
