    Swirl vs Whirl vs Twirl

    Dear teachers,

    What's exactly the difference among swirl, whirl and twirl? Once I read somewhere that 'swirl' is a spin caused by nature powers such as wind or water. But for those next words I got no idea. Can someone please help me figuring this out? Thanks in advance!

    Re: Swirl vs Whirl vs Twirl

    Welcome to the forum, shahin.

    What exactly is the difference between swirl, whirl and twirl? Once I read somewhere that 'swirl' is a spin caused by natural forces such as wind or water. But for those next words I have got no idea. Can someone please help me to figure this out?

    Thanks in advance!
