    Which one

    Hi,there!Your help is needed here.
    Should I use "die down"or "die away"to describe a wind which is gradually becoming weak or stop? And you please explain the differences between them.
    Thanks a lot!

    Re: Which one

    Winds die down.

    Living things die, and things like wind and noise die down. They don't die away. They may fade away or slip away, but not die away.

    And I've no idea why!
