what diferrent and how to use "cycle" , "cyclic" and "cycling"?
A cycle is anything that follows a pattern and repeats itself.
Cyclic is an adjective describing something as a cycle.
Cycling is a sport.
You use each one when it is the most appropriate choice.
Do you have a particular sentence you are wondering about? If not, this question is impossibly vague.
Cycle has many meanings. When you have decided which you are
asking about, we would welcome a more specific question.
thank you very much.
however please let me know the meaning of "cycling icemaker".
I'm pretty sure a cycling ice maker is something in most freezers that constantly freezes water into ice cubes.
thank you so much
A cycle is a repeated sequence. "Cycle" is also a short way to say "bicycle", "motorcycle", or "unicycle".
"Cyclic" is used for anything that repeats a cycle, especially an abstract pattern.
A cycling ice maker would be a device that puts water in a mold/tray, waits for it to freeze, empties the ice cubes into a bin, and repeats the cycle.
many thank Forero
