repository & reservoir I am not going to ask whether there is any difference between these two words, because I am afraid you are going to tell me there isn't any. So, here comes my question: Would you please do some free association on these two words, be it personal or subjective. Hope I am not asking too much. thanks :) sorry i may not have made myself clear, i mean, i don't know how I should "feel" them, for the lack of better words, so that's why i was asking such a strange question.

When I think of resevoir I almost always think of water. Repository brings to mind a place to store something valuable - A bank or vault. I don't associate a repository with water.
