Hi,can anyone explain me the difference between bump and lump?Thank you.
I think the WR dictionary provides the distinction. A bump is a type of lump. It's a lump that creates a protuberance in an otherwise flat surface.
bump n (hump, lump in a surface) bulto nm
I need to amend my response. A bump is a protuberance on an otherwise smooth surface, not necessarily a flat surface. You can have a bump on your head, and most heads are not flat. So a bump is a protuberance on a surface caused by a lump of something under the surface.
Separate names with a comma.
