"Can you tell me how to differentiate 'hinder' and 'hamper'?"


Feifei received a food hamper at Christmas. Hamper 当名词使用时的意思是装食品的篮子。

But the verb 'hamper' means something quite different!

e.g. The rescue progress was hampered by the bad weather.

The verb 'hinder' has a similar meaning to 'hamper'.

e.g. The project was hindered by the lack of funding.

Do you know the subtle differences between these two words?

In this week's Question and Answer of the Week, Feifei and Neil help you distinguish the usages of 'hinder' and 'hamper'.
