「Certain」の類語とその違い

Q: certain と particular と specific はどう違いますか?
A: I don’t know if there’s a rule because they’re all so similar! What I will say is, specific implies greater exclusion, particular a little less and certain even less. If you were talking about a group of people in front of you you might say “That particular group of people”. If you were trying to point them out you could say “That specific group of people.” If you were talking about a random group of people you could say “A certain group of people”. You can interchange them most of the time and there are only very slight differences between all of them. Hope this helps!
Q: certain と particular はどう違いますか?
A:
Yeah, they both make sense and have similar meanings. In the way your using the two words they can both be used.
Although in my opinion, I prefer the second one! ^^
Q: for certain と for sure はどう違いますか?
A: @Yukiyuki1 meaning is the same but for sure is more commonly used whereas certain is less used in spoken language
Q: certain と sure はどう違いますか?
A: certain has two meanings.
1. sure
2. specific
so I'm guessing you are talking about the first meaning of certain.

I think there's not much difference. Certain is just used in more formal conversations while sure sounds very informal.

and one more difference which I think but not SURE of is:
When asking a question- "are you sure?" it sounds natural to use 'sure' but very very unnatural to use 'certain'
Q: not certain と uncertain はどう違いますか?
A: I don't want say it's true 100% of the time. But generally, it does sound more formal to me.

"I was unaware." <-- more formal
"I was not aware."
"I wasn't aware." <-- more casual

"I was unafraid."
"I was not afraid."
"I wasn't afraid."

"I was unprepared."
"I was not prepared."
"I wasn't prepared."

It depends on how commonly used the word is, which will differ for each one. For example, I hear "unprepared" a lot, but I rarely hear "unaware". So "unprepared" and "not prepared" sound almost equal to me, but not the others.
