    law and legislation

    Hello teachers,

    Could you tell me if these two terms, mentionned in the title are interchangeable? I wonder if there's a situation where one term is more suitable than the other? Could you give me an example if it is so?

    Re: law and legislation

    The two words are rarely interchangeable.

    I suggest you look up the words in dictionaries such as those you can find here: OneLook Dictionary Search You can then post sentences in which you feel that one of the two is the right choice, and we'll tell you if you are right. if you are wrong, we may be able to tell you why.
