Any differences between"imitate"and"emulate"? Those two words have the same meaning of "copy somebody or something" so are there any diffences between them?

Imitate refers to mimicking someone, plain and simple, while emulate usually is referring to doing so with admiration, respect and a certain sense of wonder. As in trying to match the greatness of a childhood hero. Hope that helps.

The difference is that emulate usually has a positive connotation, while imitate is usually negative.
