To change

Posted by hamshank December 31, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

Hello everyone....Can anyone explain the difference between 變 - biàn = "To change" and 換 - huàn = "to change"

Is it that 變 applies to transforming/changing the same thing/person, where as 換 applies to changing one thing for a different thing?

For example "to change my car" I would use 換 and for "my face has turned red" I would use 變

Thanks
