Hello, sometimes I don't know which is the best place to write. I hope here it's ok. I would like to ask a question.

"Strange/odd": what is the difference between these two words, if there is any?

"Weird" should point out something more ambigous and obscure, if I'm not wrong.

Thank you,

Chiara

Here are some "feelings" I have for the words in question.

Strange = unfamiliar

Odd = not normal

Weird = unexplainable, eerie

Others will perhaps have other "feelings" associated with these words.

to Marius: thanks for the link to the synonym web site.

to Philip: you are right most of the time feelings can explain it better then anything else. The thing is that often I'm not so sure of my "feelings" in English.

But I can undertsand the feelings you mentioned: strange/ unfamiliar; odd/not normal/ out of the rules (if I can say this)

Thank you so much,

Chiara
