    I recommend that you look up the definitions in a dictionary and then use those definitions to use the words appropriately. They are not synonyms.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The moderator gave you good advice. Check several dictionaries. They will give you the differences as well as the similarities. Then if you are still confused, try making some sentences with the words and post them here for our comments.

    Thank you for the replying but I would like a longer answer. Dictionaries are not living like these forums and I think I keeping confusing them.
    Start every sentence with a capital letter; don't leave a space before a full stop; end every sentence with a punctuation mark.

    We are not here to replace dictionaries. Bookmark OneLook.com for future reference (click on the underlined link).
