Student or Learner
please explain to me the difference between "lucky" and "fortune"
What the questioner wants to ask may be something like this:
lucky - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online
1. having good luck [= fortunate; ≠ unlucky]
- The children were lucky to survive the fire which destroyed their home.
- those of us lucky enough to own our own homes
- I'll be lucky if I get any of my money back.
- I was tremendously lucky that I didn't die in the accident.
- We've been very lucky with the weather.
- Count yourself lucky you've got a husband like Jack.
Are the word "lucky" and "fortunate" interchangeable in the examples above? What would you answer, freezeframe?
