Ähnliche Wörter wie "Conceitance" und ihre Unterschiede

Q: Was ist der Unterschied zwischen conceitance und vanity ?
A: A couple of side notes: “conceitance” isn’t a word — it’s just “conceit” :) Also, the noun forms of these words are “conceit” and “vanity,” and the adjective forms are “conceited” and “vain.” For example:
He has a lot of conceit.
She has a lot of vanity.
He is very conceited.
She is very vain.
(I would say it’s much more common to use the adjective forms when possible.)

Anyway, on to the explanation: These words are very similar; they both basically mean pride. But being vain usually refers to being proud of your looks, while being conceited can mean being proud just in general. They’re both unpleasant adjectives, by the way — not how you want to be described!

More examples:
Helen is known for being vain.
Charles is a very conceited man.
(You can interchange “vain” and “conceited” in both of these sentences.)

One last note: “vain” also has a separate meaning of “futile” or “unsuccessful”, and
the phrase “in vain” basically means “without success”. (This phrase is almost always used with “tried”.)

He tried in vain to turn the water on.
In vain, she reached for the paper.
They ran in vain towards the door.

The government made a vain effort to control the people.
There was a vain attempt to stop the charging elephant.
