1) skilled vs skillful "He is a skilled worker" - generally taken to mean that he has acquired a professional degree of skilfulness. "A skilful worker" is someone who is good at what they do.

2) what's the difference between a northern wind and a northerly wind? "Northern" - wind from the compass direction of north; "Northerly" - a wind than comes from points on either side of the compass direction.

3) blanket vs quilt A blanket is woven from fibres; a quilt has two layers, between which is a padding, and is sewn together..

4) I'm looking for a verb that describe actions such as: Change from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit or from meters to foot... "convert"

5) I'm looking for a noun: Vietnamese tenth graders are being divided into three_____. Students of _______ A major (ie: They learn these subjects more than others) in Math, Physics and Chemistry, students of _______ D major in a foreign language and Math and Literature, students of _____ C deosn't major in any particular subject... How can we fill in the blank with one word? Try "stream(s)"
