Q: excuse ve pretext arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Wow, tough question!

An excuse is an explanation that you give for doing something when you want to avoid being negatively judged by other people. For example, if someone wants to leave a party early and doesn't want to offend the host, they will use an excuse. (I have a headache, I need to get up early tomorrow for work, etc.) Note that an excuse can also be true!

A pretext is similar to an excuse but it's far more sinister. A pretext (or pretense) is a contrived reason/justification for something that is false and not the real reason. For example, a kid wants to hang out with his friends so he invents/makes up a pretext so his parents let him go. (We have a group project and we need to work on it together, I don't have a copy of the homework problems, etc.) The important thing is that a pretext is always a lie and hides the real motive.

By the way, I notice that you ask a lot of questions here. You must study really hard!
