    What's the difference between these words ?

    Hi all
    I'd appreciate if someone could explain the difference between the following words and give me some examples:
    award, reward, prize, present, gift, bonus.

    Thanks so much

    If you have problems with the definitions, we may be able to help you, but your first port of call for the meanings of words should be a dictionary.

    There are dozens here: OneLook: General dictionary sites

    No, they don't. There may not be a great deal of difference between 'gift' and 'present', but the others are very different. We may be able to help with problems, but for the basic meanings of words, there is no point in our trying to do what lexicographers do - usually very well.
