Hi

What's the difference between extend, bestow and give in:

With the exception of one year (1957), the World Bank has extended loans to Colombia in every year since 1949.

?Thanks in advance

soheil1extend, bestow and give

extend sounds business-like, which is appropriate in the example shown.

bestow sounds very high register to me, practically royal. You won't hear this word in an ordinary conversation.

give sounds very ordinary.
