What is the difference between the two adjectives: slick and sleek?
My dictionary returns almost the same explanation for both, like smooth and glossy.
Could someone explain when it would be more appropriate to use one or the other.
Both mean smooth or seeming to be smooth.
To me, slick is more about touch: slippery, and sleek is more about sight/appearance. A wet moss-covered surface is slick. A satin skirt is sleek.
