Hello, I need help with the words reside/live. in the following sentence reside is correct but i don't know how to explain it to the students. Live is more common I guess?

The Big Sky State Games Competition is an Olympic-style amateur sports festival for athletes of all ages and abilities that reside/live in the Great State of Montana.

I agree.
reside = are resident in.

Hi,

As so often in English there are many examples of one or more words with the same meaning but which have different functions. 'Live' is the standard word and 'reside' is the official word. By that I mean the word used in official documents/descriptions. It is frequently used in the third person and would not usually be used in the second person. Asking someone direct, you would say: Where do you live? The police officer would write down: The accused currently resides at ,,,
