comment pleat vs crease
I see it. When a speaker elects to use "crease", they don't use "pleat" (while they could), which means that there should be reasons why that choice has been made, so "crease" has more tendency to NOT having been formed on purpose.

Aha! So, pleats form a subset of all creases, which has one property of them being deliberately formed. Thanks!

@DavidWallace OK! Could you form it as an answer for me to be able to accept it?

comment “peak” vs “summit”
@DavidWallace Maybe "summit" may be more level, while "peak" is always pointed? (I'm just guessing). :)

comment “peak” vs “summit”
@DavidWallace What is the use of having two words meaning the same thing? Usually there are slight differences in meaning or connotations between synonyms.

Why want is desire but no need? The dictionary gives the following definition of want: something that you need or want.
