Q: refuse と reject はどう違いますか?
A: In US English, “refuse” usually = to show or express unwillingness to do or comply with
He refused to go with us to the party—he hates hanging out with those people.
The soldier refused to follow the order because he thought it was unlawful.
The kid refuses to do anything his parents say.
He refused to be bribed.

With an object, it can also mean “to decline to accept (something offered)”:
He refused the award.
Please don’t refuse our invitation.
He refused the bribe.

reject = to turn down or dismiss as inadequate or unsatisfactory or doesn’t meet some standard or principle
He rejected the job offer because the salary was too low.
He rejected the award. (He thinks the standards of the awarding committee are too low, maybe.)
He rejected the bribe. (Maybe it was too low OR it’s unsatisfactory because he thinks it is wrong to take bribes.)
(NOTE: you can “refuse to [verb]” or “refuse [noun]” but you can only “reject [noun]”—“reject to [verb]” is wrong.]
Q: refuse と reject はどう違いますか?
A: Refuse is more polite, to show you are not willing to do something. Reject is more violent, to dismiss, to fail.

"I refuse go to that restaurant, they have bad reviews"

"I refuse to see that movie, it is to violent"

"The new law was Rejected by government officials and will not pass"

"I asked a girl to dance but she rejected me in front of the whole crowd, I had to leave"

You could use refuse in that sentence too but you would take out the negative after effect.

"I asked a guy to dance but he refused, I asked a second guy and he said yes."
Q: refuse と reject はどう違いますか?
A: Reject meaning to dismiss and refuse to not be apart of or take part. They are very similar
Q: refuse と reject と decline はどう違いますか?
A: @komattyan:Refuse the action version over refuse is shaking your head no its lighter and sounds less aggressive the action of Reject is sticking your hands out and pushing something away it's the harshest out of the 3 decline is slightly pushing something like pushing a paper away form you its usually used in business terms like "I presented my idea to the board about raising pay but it was sadly declined"
Q: refuse と reject はどう違いますか?
A: If you refuse something that does not necessarily mean you have a problem with it. Reject is usually a negative connotation, that you don't approve.

Also, they aren't interchangeable. Example:
"I refuse to go on a date."
"I reject to go on a date."
The second sentence isn't right. To make it right it would have to be "I rejected going to a date."

Refusal is more of a physical action while rejection is a mental action. You usually reject ideas and refuse to go places.

I think that was the best way to explain, sorry for the long read.

Q: 1.I refuse people defining my art.
2.I refuse to let people define my art.
3.I refuse to allow people to define my art.
A: @churchstreet

“i refuse people defining my art” sound like a neutral statement to me, not necessarily formal. the image i get from it is people walking up to your art and asking to define it, while you tell them no and refuse it. it sounds unnatural in most situations i think.

“i refuse to let people define my art” sounds more emphatic to me, it sounds like you are proud of your art and have created your own interpretation of it, and you do not let people’s words change your opinion on your art even if they define it as something else.

“i refuse to allow people to define my art”: sounds the most emphatic of the three, and by adding “allow” it sounds like if somebody defines your art, you are physically going to do something about it, it could range from simply telling them to stop or even using violence.
