    Re: Splice Vs Join

    "Join" is an all-purpose word we use when we connect things together.
    We join two pieces of wood to make a joint. We can join our friends for a night out.
    "Splice" is more specialised and usually means the joining of threads as in splicing cables together.
    However, an author can splice together the separate threads of a story, too.
    If threads are involved, use "splice". If not, use join.
    Hope this helps.
