Which is quicker " Express" and " Expedite"? What is the difference? —This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 2006-07-27T07:27:37.

"Expedite" is used like this:
He expedited the search by alphabetizing the papers.
The senses of "express" that are verbs do not generally indicate quickness:
He has difficulty expressing his feelings.
(No speed is implied by the verb "express".)
The senses of "express" that generally indicate quickness are not verbs:
He rode the express train to Seattle.
("Express" is an adjective in this sense.)

Usage example[edit]

Is there a reason the usage example only shows past tense of the verb and not present tense? —This unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 16:19, 29 August 2012‎ (UTC).
