Q: What is the difference between terrible and horrible ?
A: The only difference I would suggest is that horrible is more emotional and terrible is more logical. You would be more likely describe someone who did a really technically rubbish painting as 'terrible' but if it was frightening or ugly to look at 'horrible' would be used. If I said I was bad at something I'd say I was terrible at it (its more logical than emotional). A bad person would more likely be described as horrible because they make you or others feel bad (emotional). But they're almost the same thing and anyone you spoke to would completely understand either way :)
