What's the difference between attempt and try?
Thanks in advance!!
They are not quite the same in meaning. With 'attempt', there is more of a suggestion that you won't succeed. 'Trying' to do something is positive, whereas 'attempting' implies a certain futility.
Thank you Su.Ki.!! I was hear about that once, but I wasn't sure whether it was true or not.
Correct! 'To attempt' is much more formal, which is why it's not used as much as 'to try'
But... attempt seems to be more formal, isn't it? At least, reading articles from newspaper sounds like that.
