Pace vs limp #2 (permalink) Sun Dec 18, 2005 8:53 am   Pace vs limp
 

Hello learner,

The verb “pace” means to walk back and forth moved by some strong, usually negative feeling. It has emotional colouring. Imagine you are worried about something, or nervous let’s say, then you become restless and can’t just sit down on a chair, so you start pacing up and down the room.

The verb “limp” means to walk in a lame way, unsteadily; it also implies physical defect of the legs. It doesn’t have emotional colouring.

Hope this helps!
Success!
