The difference between speical and different is when you say someone is special you are saying that the are different in a very good way.when say they ate different you are saying they are different not necessarily in a good way.lets say somebody told you that they are different than other people because of where they are from tHen you could say that they are speical!
Two words I can up with are "love and hate". Sometimes you hear people say,"oh, we have a love hate relationship." What that means is that those people get along. But, sometimes they don't like each other or get along.
Special and Different can really affect a sentence that somebody says because they are two words that when said they sound like they would have the same meaning, but they don't saying somebody s special means that you are trying to make them feel good about that thing that sparks inside them that everyone notices it like when Rachel, Ally, Daisy, and I call ourselves special it means we r so unique in many different ways. if we where to call our selves different it would be in a more dark type of way. in Rosas case everyone looks at her like she is different from everyone else in a bad way they al judge her but her physical fetchers the way she talks and looks, that's why she loves how Jessica doesn't see her as different she looks at her inside specialties Jessica looks at how she has a gift with math witch makes her SPECIAL not different.
The difference between the word different and special is as follows. Different means out of the ordniary and it doesn't always mean good because sometimes people use it to make fun of others. On the other hand special means a POSITIVE difference, and is never a negative thing unless said sarcastically. For example, lets say there is a new kid in your class. When you get into art class, you look over his sholder and see the most beautiful drawing that you've ever laid eyes on. You are about to compliment him. In this case you would use the word special to encourage him and let him know that your trying to be geniunely kind.
I think special means that you have a talent, and different means it's about your personality. If someone is a good soccer player they have a special talent. If someone is meaner than others, they are different, and not special.
The difference between the two words is that the word different means that someone has something about them that makes them different and it is mostly negative. Special means that someone has something about them that no one else has but it is positive and it can also help other people. One example of when you would use special over different is like how Rosa is a math genius and she wouldn't really be called different she would be called special because it is a positive ability that she can use to help other people, like tutoring other kids.
Being special and being different are two different things. Being special is the meaning of having a unique characteristic and being different means you stand out, but not in the greatest way. A situation is just like in the book how Jessica is different because she has a prothesis leg. But, something that makes her special is not her disability but her dedication to running. More people see the disability but others know who she really is, and see her as being special because of her passion for running.
I think that special and different are the same yet not the same. They both are describing something or someone that is not the same as the rest. Different is very vague and could mean alot of things while special is something that makes it/he/she stand out of the crowd in a good way. It also depends on how you say your statement. For example, if you say to someone in a sarcastic/mean way " wow, you're real special" they would still be offended even though being special is meant as a compliment. Different, as I said is very vague and could mean anything, good bad or otherwise. It mainly depends on the delivery and how the person percieves it. Personally, it seems more apropriate to say special versus different just so you don't offend someone because they may intereperet it as an insult. In some situations it is apropriate to say different, it really all depends on who/what you are describing and what you want to say. Say what you mean to say.
The difference from special and different is special is a good thing an and different is a bad thing or a hurtful thing
Different is usually used in a negitave way, and special is usually used positively. You can say that someone is special for being born in India, and you can say that someone is different for a medical condition.
There are differences and similarities between the words special, and different. The word special can mean that the person has a special gift that others don’t. The word different means that people have a disability. Those two words can be used in many other ways. For example, different can mean that people don’t look the same. Another thing that special means is that people have disability. It just depends how they are used.
In the story “The Running Dream”, a girl named Rosa is special and different. She is special because she is a terrific math student. She is different because she has cancer.
When the author is talking about Rosa helping Jessica with math. Then Jessica tells Rosa how good she is at it. That is a good time to say that she is special. That is because she has a gift and special usually means a good thing.
A good situation to use the word different is when people are talking about positive differences from one person to another. For example, LeBron James is the best player in the NBA (not the best ever Mr. B, Michael Jordan was the best ever). He is different because he has much better talent then others in the NBA.
I think that the difference from those two words is basically what we talked about at school. I think special means that you are different but like what we talked about. They both mean the same thing but one sounds negative and one sounds positive. One example would be that some people would call you special for being good at a sport. If you were not so great at that sport you would be different. That is what I think is different about the two words and their meanings ( special and different.)
when you say special, it means your different in a weird way. When your different, you aren't like someone in your own uniquie way. Hehe it's hard to explain! When you say special, it should be when you do something unique or weird in your own way. When you say different, it should be because you aren't like any other human being and you do something that nobody else would think of. Lol like I said....It's kinda hard to explain.
~peppy to the weppy! word! :)
I actually thought that them were the same. But anyway special in my opinion means that you have a special talent. Different ment like your not always in a good way normal. For special you could have very very good reaction time. If a person is called different they maybe are doing something unusual or look unusual.
Well being special is a good trait out of you.
And being diffrent is what seprates you from everybody else which makes you DIFFRENT.
Say you can do a triple backflip off a diving board that is special
Say One person is White and another person is African American They are both diffrent.
I think the difference between the words special and different are the when you are special there is something different about you, but it is something that some people think is good or some that they like. When someone says you are different it means that there is something different about you that most people consider to be bad. Here is an example when you should be careful with your word choice. "Wow you are a ballerina, that so different\ special." The right choice is special because there are not a lot of ballerinas out there and it is a good thing to do something unique, not different. There is an example that you have to be careful about your word choice.
I think there is a very small difference between those to words. To be special is when you do something better or something cool and interesting. To be different is when you are not the same as other people. I think when you are talking to someone about how they are or how they act you use special. You use different when you describe two objects.
Most of the time people use special and different as a positive and negative thing. With special being used more as a positive thing and different usually used negatively. They both sort of mean the same thing, the two words mean that that is something that sets you apart from everyone else. If someone says you are special for something you can do they are usually complimenting you and saying that you are different in a magnificent way.
I think that different means like that something may not be the same as something else it might be different. Special means that your not like anything or anyone else. In a way special and different mean the same thing. When using the word different you are usually comparing things. You can use special when there is something extroidinary and like nothing else.
Special means that you have an ability that someone else doesn't. When your different you are not the same as everybody else. A situation where it is more appropriate to use one versus the other would be if there was someone in a class that was way smarter than everybody else. I think it would be correct to call him or her special because his ability is a good one and people usually relate special to something good.
