Synonyms of "Argument" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between argument and quarrel and dispute ?
A: Quarrel is a less intense argument. You and I might disagree and be unable to convince the other, but we don't start shouting at each other. A dispute is an ongoing disagreement or issue. A lawsuit would called a dispute. They are used somewhat interchangeably with the exception of quarrel. I don't hear it very often. It might be more common in other places.
Q: What is the difference between have an argument and have a fight ?
A: Argument is similar to fight but using sentences without harming each other.
Q: What is the difference between argument and discussion ?

Q: What is the difference between 1. I think that his argument is to mean that there should be no one to blame. and 2. I think that his argument would mean that there should be no one to blame. ?
A: @Pioushope It could be understood, but you wouldn’t hear anyone say that or even write that. You could also simply write: ‘’I think that his argument means/meant that no one is to blame.’’.
Q: What is the difference between argument and dispute ?
A: From what I know, 'argument' is a more common term, whilst 'dispute' is a more formal term.

They are *synonyms*, which means that they have the same definition.



•Argument - an exchange of diverging or opposite views, typically a heated or angry one.

"I've had an argument with my father"



•Dispute - a disagreement or argument.

"a territorial dispute between the two countries"



As seen above, they mean the same, but 'dispute' is usually used when describing more formal issues.
