    Smile Please help me differentiate these words : ancient , antiquated , antique , archaic

    Please help me differentiate these words : ancient , antiquated , antique , archaic.

    I'm a student and is learning English, I've asked my teacher to explain them but still confused. Please, if possible, give me some specific examples.

    (I'm a beginner so if there is any mistake in my sentence, please help me fix it too. Thanks in advance)

    Welcome to the forum, carikeuro.

    Look up these words in two or three of the excellent dictionaries here: OneLook: General dictionary sites. Make sure you look at the example sentences, not just the definitions.

    You'll find dozens of examples of the words in sentences here: FrazeIt in English - Write Good Sentences

    If you still have problems with any of them, or with the definitions, come back here with specific questions.
