Question:

Meaningwise in terms of this sentence and maybe some examples of yours, where these words can be used interchangeably and when won't?

Sentence:

With this word we can describe some of her attributes vs properties vs qualities

1
  1. quality - level of excellence or a distinctive attribute or characteristic possessed by someone or something.
  2. attribute - a characteristic or quality of someone or something.
  3. property - is something that is owned by someone or something or an attribute, quality, or characteristic of something (not someone).

"With this word we can describe some of her" either attributes or qualities is fine if you are speaking about her and properties is fine if you are speaking about something she owns or possesses.

  • With the word "very" we can describe her kindness. (a quality)
  • With the word "excellent" we can describe her communicative skills. (an attribute)
  • With the word "plenty" we can describe her books. (a property)

On other other hand.
