Link to quiz httpwww.learnex.indifference-between-idle-idol-ideal
The three words, ‘idle’, ‘idol’ and ‘ideal’ are a little confusing at times as they sound a little similar to one another. So, this lesson clearly differentiates their meaning and usage. ‘Idle’ and ‘idol’ have the same pronunciation. ‘Ideal’ is pronounced a little differently.
Idle means something is not in use, empty or doing nothing.
Example01 Are you an idle student? (means are doing nothing)
Example02 The office is idle. (here ‘idle’ means empty)
Idol is a noun. It means on object that represents a deity. It is also used to say that you excessively admire someone.
Example 01 Angelina is my idol.
Example 02 In Asia, people worship idols.
Ideal it means something that is in its perfection or something that is most suitable.
Example 01 The swimming pool is ideal for a quick dip.
Example 02 This is the ideal time to invest in stock.
