Hello All

I recently found out the subtle difference between poison and venom, which apparently depended on the way it is administered. I was wondering if such subtleties also applied to Trap and Ambush or if you could use either one in any situation. Thanks a lot!

    Hi, nzaballa. If you "ambush somebody", you hide and wait for that person to pass by so that you can attack him, etc.

    The meaning of "trap" is broader than this. There are many different ways to "trap somebody", but the word implies that you have captured that person against his will.
