I recently found the word "dictate". As always, I dived into the dictionary and took a look for definition. Following is what I found.
to give orders, or tell someone exactly what they must do, with total authority
(from Cambridge Dictionary)
At the moment I saw this definition, the word "instruct" directly came to my mind and I was a bit confused. So, I searched for definition of "instruct".
Dictionary told me
to order or tell someone to do something, especially in a formal way
Two words seems interchangeable for me! So I googled "dictate vs instruct" sort of things. However, I could not able to find any useful information: usually means they are used in very different situation.
What are the difference between them and what situations and mood or vibe they are typically used respectively?
