It's not clear what the difference between these two words is. Could someone give examples?
These two words are really not at all close in meaning. Can you tell us what you have discovered about these words when you have looked them up in dictionaries?
I'm not going to simply cut and paste the definition of each of these words from the Word Reference dictionary, as the forums are not supposed to act as a substitute for you looking these words up yourself, so without further information on why you find these words confusing its not really possible to help you.
Hi, thanks, cycloneviv. For example, when you talk about the movements in swimming, you say:
Swim in _____
Develope a _____
vido, perhaps you can quote the dictionary definitions that you find confusing. Like cycloneviv, I am a little surprised that you find the difference unclear, as the two words do not mean the same thing, and just about any dictionary would explain the difference. What dictionaries (because more than one can be found on line) did you consult before you asked this question?
Which, from your dictionary research, do you believe fits? To give you a hint, only one is at all appropriate. The other clearly would not work.
Well I've read it as "rhythm" so I guess that's the correct word . Now I realize perhaps "rhyme" is only used to talk about words, such as poetry?
You've got it. "Rhyme" refers to words, while "rhythm" can be used in many situations.
Separate names with a comma.
