comment What is the difference between “harsh” and “severe”?
Thanks. One of my dictionaries gives "harsh punishment" "harsh criticism" "harsh voice" "He is too harsh with the children" "a harsh judge", and "a harsh military discipline" is in your post, while my other dictionaries list "severe punishment" "severe criticism" "severe voice" "He is severe with his children" "a severe judge" and "the severe discipline of the marines"... so do you think "severe" and "harsh" can be used interchangeably here, or does any of these examples sound weird and unnatural to you? TIA.
