    "sorry" is generally used when you are APOLLOGIZING for something .Also (especially in Britain) is used for asking to repeat something that you have not heard clearly.

    "pardon me" is used to ask someboday to repeat something because you didn't hear it or did not understand it, also used by some people to mean "sorry" when they have accidentally made a rude noise, or said something wrong.

    Dear Amy,
    the difference is that "sorry" is a word for Apology in general, while "pardon me" is in most cases used for asking someone to repeat something not heard or understood well.
