Hello,

I cannot understand the difference between the noun "strip" and the noun "stripe". When I check the dictionary, it seems basically the same thing although dictionary does not indicate they are synonymous.

Thank you.

Rui.

A strip is more like a ribbon. It's a detached long and narrow shape. A strip of cloth. A strip of paper.

A stripe is more like a long line painted on something else. A white shirt with blue stripes. A red skirt with white stripes. A pedestrian walk painted with white stripes.
