Although it is not correct, we have realized that some people substitute the words ‘critique’ and ‘criticize’ in sentences. Today, we’d explain the difference between these two words.
Critique can be used either as a verb or a noun. As a noun, it refers to a detailed evaluation of something. To request for this formally you’d have to say, something like this;
Give me your critique.
As a verb, critique is the act of evaluating something in a detailed and honest manner. A critique does not necessarily have to be negative.
To criticise however means to find fault with or to judge negatively.
Let’s see a few examples;
I asked him to critique my script; I was happy with the feedback.
Mr King criticizes a lot. It’s not wise to speak to him
We hope this explains it.
