    movement - motion

    Kommentar
    I don't have a particular example or anything, I was just wondering if there is any difference at all between the two concepts because according to my dictionaries, both movement and motion correspond to 'Bewegung' in German, and it seems to me that they are often used synonymously especially in technical texts. Or is there any difference I'm not aware of?
    Thx!

    I would like to know that, too. In my opinion, "movement" is a more physical term, while "motion" could describe some emotional "Bewegung", too. Is that right?

    Hi Carolina, I don't think that there is really anything in it. I'm studying alevel physics and both words are used to describe the same thing, although motion is prefered, i.e Newton's laws of motion, equations of motion etc.

    In other contexts there may be some differences like a motion in the house of lords or the women's movement. If you were to swap the words over in these two examples they would have a different meaning (i think) but both generally envolve change of state :)
