    starvation, as well as

    Dear teachers,

    I have two questions to ask:

    No.1
    Could you please explain if there is any difference between 'die of hunger' and 'die of starvation'?

    No.2
    I love music and I love sports, too.
    If I connect the two sentences to one, should it be:
    'I love music as well as sports' or 'I love sports as well as music'?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    'I love music as well as sports' or 'I love sports as well as music'?

    Both are correct. I would say the first if I loved music the most or the second if sports was my greater love.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Jiang,
    No. 1) The two examples mean exactly the same.

    No.2) "I love and I love sports too"
    "I love music as well as sports"
    "I love sports as well as music" ...are all correct and interchangeable

    Dear moggy,
    Thank you very much for your reply. Your explanation to No.2 is different from that of Nappmlao's. Is it possible you native speakers agree with each other?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.
    Have a nice weekend.
