Dedicated and devoted life.
How to separate these words? I looked up in dictionary and they have the same (almost) meaning so I thought that the difference shoud be very slight.
Could you tell me what they mean in the particular sentence?
Thanks in advance.
You're right. It is a title to an article.
But many people use two adjectives like this, when one would suffice.
I suppose it is an answer to my question, right? Or they still have a differnce in meaning?
"Dedicated and devoted" means "dedicated in the sense of devoted, and vice versa".
'dedicated' refers to time or effort focussed to a particular task or purpose.
'devoted' (as an adjective, as in your title) means loyal or loving.
Hence, use of both words combines the objective idea of focussed time and effort, with the subjective, emotional aspects of feelings of love and loyalty.
