Synonyms of "Beg" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between beg and solicit ?
A: As verbs the difference between beg and solicit is that beg is to request the help of someone, often in the form of money while solicit is to persistently endeavor to obtain an object, or bring about an event.

As a noun beg is a provincial governor under the ottoman empire, a bey.

"The detective went around the neighbourhood soliciting information from people who were home at the time of the robbery."

"The man who was robbed begged his neighbours for information regarding the thief"

Both these words request information, but "beg" has a sense of desperation behind it. The detective is just doing his job, but the man who was robbed has lost a lot of money and is desperate to get it back.

I hope that helps.


Also, be careful when using "solicit." It has a second meaning, which is to ask for money in exchange for sex.

Things like "I saw him soliciting the neighbours" could potentially be misunderstood!
Q: What is the difference between begging and pleading ?
A: Pleading seems to be as if more is at stake. Like life or death. It might not really be life or death, but it can feel that way. A prisoner can plead to be freed, and a child can plead to eat some candy.
Begging is more about material objects or simple favors. A beggar wants money, a dog can beg you for a treat, or you can beg someone to go on a roller coaster with you. So, basically, pleading has a stronger meaning than begging.
Q: What is the difference between beg and crave and entreat and implore ?
A: beg = you need something from someone else
"He was begging me for some money"

crave = a desire for something that you probably have control over
"I'm craving something sweet"

entreat = I don't hear this word very often, it seems like a softer version of implore. It also almost sounds like there's something in it for the other person (en"treat"ing / convincing them to do what you want).

implore = strong desire for someone to do something
"I implore you to take a look at chapter 7"

Sorry if this answer isn't perfect, I would say generally "beg" and "implore" are informal and formal, whereas crave is something different. Beg also has a bit of a negative connotation though (like a beggar would beg someone), but implore sounds dignified (a scholar would implore someone).
Q: What is the difference between to beg and to implore ?
A: implore is to beg or ask for forgiveness while beg is to ask and keep asking for charity
Q: What is the difference between beg and ask ?
A: "Ask" is used more. However "beg" is more desperate.
例えば
He asked how much it was
Or
He asked when we meet tomorrow.

He begged for his life.
Or
He begged for some extra money.
