You have this ingenious method of showing the meanings of words through their etymology. But , with these words , the case is different. We can not rely on these words' etymology to explain the subtle differences between them. The word travil etymologicall denoted how difficult and hard to move from one place to another. Journey, on the other hand, its etymologicql sense is the distance you travel during a day. For trip , it comes from a root that meant to tread and from that root english got the words tread, tramp, trample, trap and trot. Finally , the word voyage is derived from via "road" + age. So, sometimes etymology doesnt help us in understanding the nuances of each and every word. Language is a complicated phenomenon in which many factors and elements effect the development of its vocabs

Hello, may I ask for some additional clarification of the usage of "Travel". If "Journey" is used to show we move from one place to another and "trip" is to show we are focused on the time we spent on that place... then what is the usage of "Travel - what does it show? And one more question as far as I've been taught "travel is always singular you said we can use it as a plural as well. Is there a rule of exceptions for using travelS. Thanks a lot. The videos are great! I've just started watching and already learned so many things!!

Hi Gideon, another useful video, thanks! I just wanted to let you know that the subs appear in a white font with a grey background. They're not very legible, I'm afraid; do you think you could change the font colour? Thanks and looking forward to more videos!

Hello, I really like this video. As I am a foreigner, I always have difficulties in using vocabulary properly because of connotation, or sth like that. For example, I didn't know that the word "consequence" is usually used in a negative voice. I hope I could watch more videos about difference between words. Thanks :)

+Choi Sol Thanks, I hope you are no longer confused about these words. More videos soon.
