Hi, this is my first post, so please correct any mistake that I could make in the process of making a post in the best way.

Is there any difference between the word Crap and Shit? I know that both mean excrement, but is there any difference of context or characteristics of the excrement? I mean: size, shape, etc?

    There is no difference in the meaning, just the vulgarity of the word. Crap is a slang word for excrement, but is not nearly as vulgar as saying shit. I would avoid using both words unless you're with close friends or are very familiar with the person or people to whom you are talking.

    There's no difference in the size, shape, or any other characteristic. It's all " poop". The only difference
    is that shit is a vulgur cuss word that will get you sent to the principal's office or grounded, and crap will
    only get you a stern look from an old lady.
