Hi,

How is 普段 different from 普通? Are they interchangeable?
I can't seem to grasp the nuance, so I just use 普通 all the time.

    普段 comes from 不断, means continually or seamless.
    普通 means generally recognized or generally sawn.
    We can use 普段 insted of 普通 in many cases, but sometimes we cannnot change 普通 to 普段, for example,
    普通教育課程、普通株、普通自動車、普通郵便局、普通列車、・・・
