How do they differ "slight change" and "slight rearrange"? When some slight change can be possible, is it ok to be used "slight rearrange"? Is there any big difference between them?

    You're using change as a noun. Consider slight rearrangement. – Lawrence Oct 24 '16 at 1:44
  • a rearrangement is a particular type of change. Not all changes are rearrangements. For example a change in color. – Jim Oct 24 '16 at 3:46
  • To illustrate @Jim's point more...I could rearrange 'It was a dark and stormy night' to 'It was a stormy and dark night'; or I could change it to 'It was a dark and windy night.' – Spagirl Oct 24 '16 at 14:29
  • Basically, concept of "rearrangement" is to swap or shuffle among things already composed. On the other hand, concept of "change" is literally to incorporate something new. Everything is cleat to me now. Thank you all for everything you have done for me! – japanese Oct 25 '16 at 2:32
