Synonyms of "Dispute" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between He will intervene in a dispute. and He will arbitrate in a dispute. ?
A:
They could mean the same thing. If someone arbitrates, they have already intervened. However, someone could intervene but not arbitrate (for example, if they separated two people who were fighting but did not help them solve their argument).

A: Both are very similar, however "dispute" is only used in its verb form for an inanimate object (and not when the object is a person). So, you cannot dispute with someone, but you can get into a dispute with someone, or argue with them.

For example:
Michael disputed with Tom over the bill - incorrect
Michael got into a dispute with Tom over the bill - correct
Michael argued with Tom over the bill - correct

You can use dispute as a verb for inanimate objects:

Bob disputed the false charges on his phone bill - correct

But not when the object is a person/people:

Bob disputed the company about the false charges on his phone bill - incorrect

Dispute is also mostly used for legal/official/political situations, argue is for more general complaints/situations

Q: What is the difference between dispute and polemize ?

a dispute is more informal where maybe two people can be shouting at each other.

You can add an 'a' after "there's" making the sentence correct.

Also if you dont want to add the a, then you can change "about" to the word "over" which will make your sentence more natural.

Q: ​​There is a dispute about whether the universal banks are needed or not. In my opinion, this is indeed the case. According to Kevin (2003), the universal banks can be defined as financial intermediaries that combine commercial banks and investment banks together, and may further act as insurance companies or as shareholders in non- financial organizations. 这个 does this sound natural?
A: Really good! However the sentence "...this is indeed the case" doesn't seem to fit. The previous sentence says whether banks are needed or not, and does not support either way, so you can't say this is indeed the case. It's similar to ”有人质疑是否需要这种银行。我觉得正是如此。” I would replace that sentence with "In my opinion, universal banks are indeed required"
Q: Refute and dispute are same ?
