So many 'famous', what's the imperceptible difference? So many 'famous', what's the imperceptible difference? It's many words in English means "famous" What's the imperceptible difference? a noted author; a celebrated musician; an eminent scholar; a famed scientist; a famous actor; an illustrious judge; a notable historian; a preeminent archaeologist; a renowned painter; distinguished...... Can you give me some examples? For example, how many words can describe Shakespeare (or as worldwide famous as him)? If someone famous and excellent but live in poverty, for instance, some great artists, can I describe the one "notable", "distinguish" or "celebrated"? If someone just local famous person, how to describe? Thanks a lot! (to Italki administrators: can you delete the same question I asked? I typed something wrong and do not find how to delete or edit it)
