    I'm stumped v. I'm stuck

    What does "I'm stamped" mean used in the link?

    https://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/an...etry-file.html

    For this situation, Are "I'm stuck" and "I'm stamped" interchangeable?

    Which of the definition in the link fit with "stamp" used in the sentence in question in the cdf link?

    Thank you.

    Re: I'm stump v. I'm stuck

    None of the definitions linked are correct, because the adjective cited in your first link is 'stumped', not 'stamped'.

    See this definition here.

    Does I stumped=I confess here?

    Thank you.

    Re: I'm stump v. I'm stuck

    No, it's part of the example sentence given in that link.
    For a while I was stumped, I confess.
    Rearranging that sentence we get:
    I confess that I was stumped for a while.

    Re: I'm stump v. I'm stuck

    Stumped is an adjective. "I stump" doesn't mean anything.
