the difference between comfortable and

convenient?

Comfortable is formed from the noun comfort, which means "physical well-being, a state free from pain or irritation". Thus a comfortable chair is one in which the body feels at ease, comfortable shoes are ones which do not cause the feet any pain or irritation. Comfortable is most often used of chairs, beds, clothes, houses and flats (meaning comfor­tably furnished) and means of transport. However, it may be used in a wider sense, to mean.

(1) having or providing comfort:

E.g. He has a very comfortable life.

They have a comfortable income.

(2) simple and undemanding;

E.g. His life had settled into a comfortable routine.

(3) It is also used of sick people, meaning "free from excessive pain", "as well as can be expected".

E.g. The patient was said to be comfortable after the operation.

 

Convenient means "avoiding trouble or difficulty", or "serving to make a task, easier". Thus a convenient time for a meeting is one which fits in well with one’s other activi­ties, a convenient place is one which is easily reached, and so on. Various tools and household appliances (for example, washing machines, electric mixers, potato-peelers) can be called convenient.

Convenient can be compared with comfortable in the fol­lowing examples:

 

1. a comfortable seat - one in which the body feels at ease 2. a comfortable train - one with soft seats, etc.   3. a comfortable dress - one which does not restrict one’s movements     a convenient seat - one which is, for example, easy to reach (in a bus, theatre, etc.) a convenient train - one which runs at a suitable time a convenient dress - one which can be worn on various occasions, or is easy to wash, etc.

XI. Fill in the blanks with comfortable or convenient. In cases where both are possible, explain the difference in meaning.

1. Will ten o’clock be a... time for you? 2. There isn’t much food value in packet soups but they’re very.... 3. I think you will be more... in the armchair. 4.
