What is the difference between comfortable and convenient? Can we call them synonyms?
I see it differently.
Something comfortable gives comfort - an armchair, a pair of shoes etc
Sth convenient suits one's time and needs - a convenient time-table, bus-stop, terms etc.
I only wonder if there are any cases when they're interchangeable.
Surely depends on context :
That's a comfortable chair to sit in and watch tv.
That's a convenient chair to sit in to answer the phone.
Humble's definitions seem to fit the bill.
Thank a lot for your reply.
I'd like to ask you to do me a favour. I'm making a research on this topic. So, if you have time would you be so kind to take part in my research?
Are you comfortable with that?
Is that convenient?
Same meaning but you cannot interchange the words
Is that chair comfortable, yes but it would be more convenient near the window.
