    Casual call or Casual visit?

    Hello,
    I have just read a sentence on an English website, I just want to confirm if it's a typing mistake in the sentence below:
    I dropped over to see her because I knew she wasn't feeling well. (Paid a casual call).

    I see nothing unusual about that.

    Is there no difference between "call" and "visit"?

    Not if you're talking about seeing somebody in person there isn't. Example:

    Barb: I'm going to call on Susie to see how she's doing.
    Sharon: Can I come too?
    Barb: Sure!

    In future, Babarbutt, please name the website or create a link to it. The wider context will almost always help us to give you a better answer.
