    What does your dictionary say?

    Are car accidents common? Are they popular?

    Are diamonds the size of your fist common? Are they popular?

    Dear Allawi,

    Here is your answer.

    1)Common
    The word common can be used to compare two things which has got at list some similar characteristics.
    Also it can be used to describe the sharable thing between different people.
    Also it can be used to describe general phenomenon which occurs in everybody's life.

    eg- Allawi and her mother shares a common bed.
    There are many common mistakes people do while writing english.




    2)Popular
    Popular is similar to famous or well known.
    eg- Tiger wood is a popular golf player.
    Cricket is a very popular game in India.

    Please let me know whether the answer satisfies you or not.In case of urgency you can write me to raja.kariwadekar@rediffmail.com.
