Many thanks!!!
That's very kind of you
Can you please explain the difference between 'identify' and 'recognize'?

Sure! The answer is that there is really not a difference! They both mean the same thing: identify = recognize and recognize = identify! They are both verbs and synonyms! Angel

But they are not always interchangeable. Example: "Identify youself!'

Oh, thanks, I didn't know that! But I was just saying what was the difference.

It's also possible to recognize a person without being able to identify them.

To recognize simply refers to being able to perceive that something has been see before. You can recognize a landmark, or a particular area, or a person.

But to identify generally refers to recalling and being able to give a name or description of a person, place, or thing.

Often, you can recognize and identify a person, place, or thing, but recognizing doesn't always result in the ability to identify.

Okay, but could you say that in a simpler way? (Because I don't think I know what that means.) Think Eh?

Perhaps an example might help. Have you ever seen an actor in a movie that you recognize, but you can't identify - you can't recall the name?

Or, perhaps this image. You may be able to recognize it, but not be able to identify it.

Now that was a clever way to put it, FD. I'll raise my hat!

Thanks, JJ.

The image is of a vacuum tube. They were used in radios and TV's up until around the 1970's. They were replaced by transistors, and today we have Integrated Circuit chips (IC's) that can do the work of thousands of individual transistors. These have revolutionized the communication industry. Your cell phone is full of them.

Could you please explain the parts in bold? Would it be grammatically correct if I write "accept" instead of "accepting" here?


▪Meanwhile back in reality, most will drain your bank account, stress you into an early grave, and create unnecessary problems in your life while never accepting personal responsibility for their own toxicity.
