    Re: any difference

    Rida, please note that a better title would have been 'gnash/grind/grit one's teeth'.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

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

    Please note that that is an inappropriate opening for a post. We have many users on this forum, some native speakers, some non-native speakers, and many from each group who are more than capable of answering your question. What did you mean by "expert"? As MikeNewYork showed you, you could have checked their definitions in online dictionaries quite easily. It is not up to us to provide the examples. Once you have researched the definitions, you should give us some examples and we will tell you if you are using them correctly.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
