As I compile my vocabulary list, I pass by a lot of words that seem identical. For example, “tedious” and “bored”. I've researched the two words:
bored: feeling weary because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one's current activity
tedious: too long, slow, or dull: tiresome or monotonous.
Does that imply that tedious is doing something that I like (but the process is slow so I say it's a tedious task), but bored is when I do something that I don't like or have no interest in, for example doing homework for school?
Are these words identical or do they have subtle nuances? If there are differences, then when should I use each word?
