    Hey, hey, no language was bad at all. All of them are good so that people using them. They are just a communication tool.

    Sometime we just find a difficulties while learning a foreign language, it feels bad because we don't know its meaning at all.

    xD
    Just GET it OFF out my mind!!

    If it's not too late for the semantics debate:

    Movement is an action of an object.
    Motion is a state of an object.

    Some thing can move. If it moves then it is in motion.

    Movement is verb.
    Motion is adjective.

    Isn't it?

    Actually I think they'd both be verbs. But, English being my primary language just about guarantees I don't know it as well as you do ^_^

    What is the different between motion and movement?

    Both of them has the same meaning in my dictionary...

    Why MouseMotionListener instead of MouseMovementListener??

    I hate Java, but I've been forced to use it. My teacher don't understand C++! xD
    The difference between kinetic and potential energy.

    Movement indicates that motion has occured at some point, motion indicates that movement is occuring at that time. At least that is what is implied. The specific functions may not necessarily follow that. Of course the original decision to name the function could have any number of reasons, they might have already had an internal library that used mousemovementlistener.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    They are both nouns.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
