Which is quicker " Express" and " Expedite"? What is the difference? —This unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 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.)

Is there a reason the usage example only shows past tense of the verb and not present tense? —This unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) at 16:19, 29 August 2012 (UTC).
