    Can you tell me what's the difference between fine, penalty and punishment?

    Re: Different?

    Context would be really helpful.


    Penalty = Something unpleasant occurring as the result of wrongdoing

    Punishment = The incurring of a penalty

    Fine = A sum of money exacted as a penalty.

    The fine was his punishment for exceeding the speed limit. It is the normal penalty.
