    to bow, to bend, to bend over, to lean forward

    Do these verbs:
    1) to bow
    2) to bend
    3) to bend over
    4) to lean forward
    mean the same?

    I think they mean a quite similar concept, but how to understand the slight difference in their meanings?
    Can you help me with some sentences, or placing them in some context where it's clear how to use them?

    This forum usually works the other way round: you provide some sentences, and we help you with them.
