Explain how the pair of words in these sentences are different in their meaning. . The winning horse TROTTED/RAN to the finish line.. This table is...

146

Here's my response:

. The winning horse TROTTED/RAN to the finish line.

It's easy to decide that these two words don't have the same meaning. The words have very different meanings; "ran" is much faster and energetic than "trotted." The defintions do not overlap.

. This table is very SMOOTH/FLAT.

It's not entirely easy to decide if these two words have different meanings. A very FLAT thing will always have a SMOOTH surface, but the opposite is not always true (e.g. a river stone can be very smooth but round). The definitions tend to overlap a little, but there is some distinction between them.

. That is a very HIGH/TALL building.

It's not easy to decide if these two words have different meanings. The definitions of HIGH and TALL overlap.

. That is a very FLAT/SLIPPERY road.

It's easy to decide that these two words don't have the same meaning. While FLAT things can be SLIPPERY, they just as often are not. For example, a FLAT wet road is often slippery; a FLAT dry road is usually not. The definitions do not overlap.
