    Differences between words

    Are the vocabulary "deceive, betray, and cheat" have same meaning or there is a slight difference between them?

    Thanks.

    There are indeed differences in meaning. But there is no need to post such simple questions here. All you need to do is consult dictionaries.

    Probus has already told you what you can do. OneLook: General dictionary sites is a very good site. It is a waste of time and effort for us to try to do what hundrds of lexicographers have done very well - and you don't have to wait.

    We are happy to help if you have problems with dictionary definitions, but we are not here to replace dictionaries.

    Not until you can show that you have made some effort of your own to answer it.


    A better title would have been
    'Deceive, betray and cheat'.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
