Hi there,

Could you tell me are these two words interchangeable in these sentences?


A bird tangled / entangled in the net.

Long hair tangles / entangles easily.

Don't tangle / entangle with him, just get out there.

The bulb was found blown. (Is this grammatical?)


Cheers

People use both. "Entangled" is better.

Only "tangles". You need two things for "entangle".

Only "tangle".

Barely. It is hard to tell what it means, and it feels like there must be a more natural to put it whatever it means.
