Synonyms of "Strangle" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between strangle and choke ?
A: When used in the context of "Bob strangled Jerry" or "Bob choked Jerry" they are the same. The difference is that, "Jerry choked on his food" is also a possible use of choke. In that case, the food just got stuck in his throat making it so that he can't breathe, instead of someone wrapping their hands around his throat. Strangle doesn't have that sort of usage.

Another possible difference is that strangle sounds more like Bob is trying to kill Jerry, whereas when you say choke, he might not be trying to kill Jerry but only scare or hurt him.
