can you explain for me, is there any difference between "dread", "terror" and " horror".
They are quite similar, but "dread" is a good old Anglo-Saxon or Teutonic word for strong fear, while the other two are French and Latin in origin.
Terror often applies to the general fear provoked among an entire population, for example by a nasty political regime.
Horror often means an individual's fear, mixed with hatred; alternatively, it applies to the scary film genre.
