    sound out/feel out

    Hello,

    Do these two idioms (sound out/feel out ) mean the same? And if they do, could we say that "sound out" is more common in BrE and "feel out" in AmE ?

    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    As idioms, the two have very similar meanings. "Sound out" can also mean to pronounce something. For the similar meaning, "feel out" is more common in AmE.
