    Smile The condition/situation

    The condition/situation of these endangered animals is getting worse.



    Do both condition and situation work with the above wording? If not, what are the basic semantic differences between them? Thanks.

    Re: The condition/situation

    Hasn't this been discussed already?

    "condition" could be taken to mean the physical state of the beasts concerned.

    The situation of endangered animals is getting worse - the general environmental effects on endangered species means that they are in a very difficult situation in relation to their survival as a species.

    Re: The condition/situation

    Thanks, Anglika, again.
    After I read your post, I suddenly remember reading your same explanation somewhere before.
    Sorry for repeating the same thread because i'm quite forgetful now.
