I'm looking for the key differences between
amalgamation. The differences between their verb forms (
amalgamate) is just as acceptable to me.
Combination: the act or an instance of combining; the process of being combined; (a more specific sub-definition:) the state of being joined or united in such a way
Amalgamation: the action, process, or result of combining or uniting
These two, denotatively at least, seem very similar; are there any glaring differences that I'm unaware of?
I'm looking for something that captures that
harmony of the combination's/amalgamation's end result, if that helps.
