Hi,

Could someone describe what is the difference between 'related' and 'interrelated'?

'Interrelated' suggests more of an equal and 'two-way' relationship between the two things. eg

Garlic is related to cooking. But you wouldn't normally say that cooking is related to garlic, since you can cook without garlic.

Food and cooking are interrelated.

Best wishes, Clive
