Can anyone explain what the difference between status and state is when I talk about the condition or situation of an object?
Here's what I got from Longman English Dictionary.
status: a situation at a particular time, especially in an argument, discussion etc.
state: the physical or mental condition that someone or something is in
For example, how do you interpret these two sentences:
What is the current status of this project?
What is the current state of this project?
