    no sense and senseless have the common meaning .that is no feeling .except this ,have some
    different meaning ..senseless meaning: 1. stupid ,2.no target .

    Something is "nonsense" if it is absurd or ridiculous. Something is "senseless" if it has no meaning or explanation. We would say that a statement is "nonsense" if we disagree with it: "the Senator's speech is nonsense." We often say that something is "senseless" if it is horrible: "the senseless murder of a child."

    They're not exactly the same. Example: Your idea makes no sense. Verses. It's senseless to keep arguing about this, we just don't agree.
