I really wanna know what's the difference between these words:
Burglar, robber, mugger, thief, and shoplifter?
It's really confusing. So, I'd be really grateful when you tell me
Thank you in advance
yeah but I didn't understand a thing. It was a little complicated. I want it in a simple way.
Thief | Define Thief at Dictionary.com
A shoplifter steals things from a store secretly. Pretending to be a customer and then putting things in his pocket and walking out.Thief, robber refer to one who steals. A thief takes the goods or property of another by stealth without the latter's knowledge: like a thief in the night. A robber trespasses upon the house, property, or person of another, and makes away with things of value, even at the cost of violence: Arobber held up two women on the street.
A burglar takes things after breaking into your home, for example.
A mugger accosts you and takes your valuables directly from you, with the threat of violence done if you don't comply. Same as "robber" basically.
There is a lot of common ground among these words.
That's really helpful.
