What’s the difference between a monster that can’t speak and a monster that doesn’t speak?

In their languages section of stats for some monsters, the wording sometimes says “can’t speak” and sometimes says “doesn’t speak.”

What functional difference is there between these two wordings?

Examples of creatures that use the “doesn’t” wording include, Invisible Stalker:

Languages Auran, Understands Common but doesn’t speak it.

Or Pidlwick II from Curse of Strahd:

Languages understands Common but doesn’t speak and can’t read or write


Or, for a more apples to apples comparison (apt, since both the creatures below are plants) :

a Tree Blight:

Languages understands Common and Druidic but doesn’t speak

versus a Twig Blight:

Languages Common understands but can’t speak

Terminology: Difference between decision variables, features and attributes?

Could there be a difference between the words “feature”, “attribute”, and “decision variable” when used in the same paper? The one I am specifically thinking about is about an optimization method for clustering, but I am also wondering if there generally are any scenarios for which it could be.

I can’t manage to google up an answer that either confirms or denies that these are the same thing, and I have no formal training in data science.

Difference between ‘modify’ and ‘edit’ buttons

Is there a difference between the words ‘modify’ and ‘edit’?

Understanding the difference of branch between SVN and Git

I am a user of SVN and now I am learning Git.

In SVN I usually checkout on my local machine a repo, which includes all branches in my project and I used to select the folder for my branch I am interested to and work there.

I see a difference using Git.

Currently I am cloning a repo and clone a specific branch using gitk.

The project folder contains only the content for that branch and I cannot see all branches as in SVN, which is a little confusing for me.

I cannot find an easy way to see all branches in my local repository using Git.

  • I would like to know if the Git process I described is “standard” and some how correct or I am missing something.

  • Also I would like to know how to handle a process where I need to work on two branches at the same time in case, for example, I need to make an hotfix on master but keep the content of another branch too.

  • What is a recommend name conventions to make the folders which include the branch cloned from the repo in Git, example myproject-branchname?
