I know that there are many possible ways of saying "to die" like "to pass away", "to kick the bucket", "to snuff it", "to expire", "to depart", "to conk out", etc. Could you tell us please which words are used in the following situations:
1) in informal speech, among friends
2) in official sources of information (on TV, in newspapers, magazines and journals)
Will you please post some examples
Please, if possible, answer my question above about the classification of synonyms for "to die".
