PostSubject: change vs exchange   Fri Apr 22, 2016 9:18 am

the difference between change and exchange.

TO CHANGE (INTO)

Meaning 1: to transform something.

Example 1
The witch in the story changed  the handsome prince into a frog.

Meaning 2: to alter or modify; to replace one thing with another

Example 2:
I think we need to change the tyres on the car. They're getting old.

Example 3:
We change the sheets on our bed once a week.




TO EXCHANGE

Meaning: to give something and get something in return. The meaning is similar to CHANGE but there is more reciprocity.

Example 4:
These trousers don't fit me very well. They're too long so I'm going to take them back to the shop to exchange them for a smaller size.

Example 5:
exchanged business cards with about a dozen different people at the networking event.
