Ok, simple question (or maybe not?).
Do these two words mean the same? Could I both say "I was sick last week" or "I was ill last week" without any difference in the meaning of the sentence?
It never really occured to me until I wrote about being ill (or sick?) with a cold last week.
And if those two meant the same, why are there two different words for the same?
Reminds me of the over 200 different words for rain that the Ferengi (hello Trekkies! *lol*) use.
In German, you are "krank" and that's it...
Your ideas please :-)
