    You can look up their meanings in the dictionary, or at least provide us a context to work with!
    Have a look here:

    Welcome to the forum.

    You need to provide complete sentences and show us that you have done some research before asking. What definitions did you find in dictionaries and what led you to ask us for the difference?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
