Student or Learner
I would like to know what is the different in usage for the word " annually " and "yearly".
Thank you all, poster and who answered, for this information
I really want to know the differences between many words like these which are called synonyms while in fact they are not. They say no word is a synonym for another; there must be little or big difference
Prison-jail, ill-sick, try-attempt, place-location, manager-boss-administer-chef-head-moderator
In semantics, they say those words and many other examples are called synonyms but they are not; you may use a word instead of another but definitely not the opposite!
Can you help me to find a source that tells such differences, a dictionary or another kind of resource?
Dear Bright One:
One resource is Dictionary.com. You may find this useful, because entries from several dictionaries are presented for each word you look up.
Also, a good thesaurus will often give examples of the shades of meaning of 'synonyms.'
I hope this is useful,
