Q: What does she felt a sentimental attachment to the place creep over her mean?
A: Let's see. 'Creep over her' means 'she slowly started to feel (smth). And 'sentimental attachment' means 'to have a sentimental liking for something that you don't want to lose' (usually despite the possibility that you may lose, or may have to lose, that thing).

(BTW, I guess its not 'wrong,' but I think using 'creep' and 'sentimental attachment' is kind of weird.)

Synonyms of "Attachment" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between attachment is a file explaining all the details of the travel package and attached is a file explaining all the details of the travel package ?
A: @wintrover

Ok I'll try my best to explain clearly :)

Most nouns need either an article (the/a/an) or a pronoun (e.g. her, his, their, your etc.) before it.

e.g. My friend. Their football. The tree. An apple. Your sister.

In the context of your sentence, 'attachment' needs an article before it (the/an).

This is a link to a website explaining when to use (the/a/ an) and when not to.

So 'Attachment is a file' does not make sense. You need to specify what attachment .

Therefore 'The attachment is a file' is correct.


Also it sounds like they are writing an email. Therefore they could write, " The attachment (to this email) is a file explaining all the details of the travel package."

Or they could write " Attached (to this email) is a file explaining all the details of the travel package.

The difference between those two sentences is so subtle. The first one implies that the reader is already aware of the attachment and the sender is letting them know what it is about.
The second suggests that the reader may not be aware that there is anything attached to the email so the sender is making the reader aware that there is an attachment AND what it is about.

Therefore a native Enlgish speaker would usually use the second sentence.


I hope this is clear. If you would like any further explanation I'll try my best :)

Q: What is the difference between attachment and detachment and removal and installation ?
A: Well, attachment can mean different things. For example, a baby can be attached to his mother. Meaning that they are close to one another. Or it can mean that it is included in something. Like say, you attached a file in an email. So, in your email, you put/inserted a document to send to someone by email. While detachment is the opposite. Think of it like taking something off. Also, think of removal the same way. Like, say they are "removing"/ taking out, a virus off your computer.

And installation is when they are putting something in or on. Think of it, like when you buy a new washing machine, they bring it to your home and they put all the wires and things for it to work. That it's an example of installation.

Q: What is the difference between Please see the attachment. (e-mail) and Please find the attachment. (e-mail) ?

Please find the attachment. (where is the attachment? You better find it.. )
