According to the dictionary, guile as a noun means cunning or deceit, while as a tr.verb it means to deceive. Beguile, doesn't seem to have a noun form, and as a tr.verb means to deceive or to be cunning. Is the difference simply that of a noun/verb?
Can guile be used as a verb? If I am sightseeing and a tout charges me too much, was I guiled? Or was I beguiled? (or neither?)(or both?)
Both seem to mean to deceive. Can anyone offer some clarification on the differences between the two? Are the interchangable?
