    puddle and pool

    Is there any difference in meaning between pool and puddle when speaking about water remaining on ground after rain. Which one is more frequent in UK English? Thanks,
    Marketa

    Pool is a noun and a verb, puddle is usually seen as a noun. Also, pools of water tend to be larger than puddles.
