Q: What is the difference between reject and refuse ?
A: You would use reject when talking about a noun.
Ex: "She rejected him." Or, "The company rejected his application."
In these sentences, the nouns are "him" and "his application". These are the things that are being rejected.
Refuse is used when talking about a verb.
Ex: "They refused to go on the trip." Or, "She refused to eat the food."
"To go" is the verb that is being refused in the first sentence, and "to eat" is the verb being refused in the second sentence.
So, these two words have the same meaning, except reject is used only in reference to nouns, and refuse is used only in reference to verbs.
