    To confuse you guys even more a doctor's surgery can be referred to as a "practice"

    do a google search for "medical practice"

    Oh guys, do you want to know what is confussing?
    Listening to @Lynne's explanation about the difference between:
    - to flicker
    - to sparkle
    - to shimmer
    - to glitter
    - to twinkle

    To be honest, I'm still, and even more, confused.

    Stars don't flicker or shimmer @april, but they can twinkle!
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,843 mod
    Can they glitter or shine, @mheredge ?
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,539 mod
    You can say that stars are shining. They can also glitter @april.
