I am interested in the difference between spot (n) and mark (n).
These nouns have different meanings. I am only interested in the difference of the meaning of:
mark: a small area on the surface of something that is dirty
spot: a small amount of a substance that is on something
The difference between this two definitions is not always clear for me.
Here are some examples of this meaning:
