    Thank you.

    Try a dictionary first, and then come back if you are not clear.

    Re: Differences, synonyms

    I tried Longman Dictionary, still not so clear: reunion, gathering and meeting.
    Reunion is ONLY after years?
    Gathering is only unofficial?

    I went to her house and there were a lot of our friends, so it was a really nice unexpected meeting.

    Can I use meeting in the sentence above?

    And please, what is the difference between inheritance and heritage? My dictionary says for both: when you recieve something from your ancestors
    or something like that, but I see no difference then.

    Re: Differences, synonyms

    Please ask one question at a time, or the thread can become confusing. Your question about inheritance and heritage should be asked in a different thread.

    There can be a reunion only if people have been together before. It is usually after some time, often years. People at a gathering or meeting have not necessarily come together before.
