hi, I hope some one is kind enough to explain to me these words.
Perspective vs. perception; Difference vs. distinction.

Thanks.!)
The "p" words are both used casually to mean "this is my take on it/ this is the way I see it/ this is my point of view/ this is my opinion."

"Perception" is the process by which sensory information is received and interpreted by the brain. It's often used legally to point up that two witnesses see the same events differently.

To put something in perspective is to look at it in relation to its surroundings or other relevant information.
It also describes the nature of depth perception.

I'm not looking these things up, because I assume you already have done so.

The soldier served with distinction.

The difference between two and three is one.
