Help - 忽然 and 突然 differences
I could not find this question on ChinesePod, so sorry if it's already been addressed. But I need help understanding the difference between 突然 and 忽然. I'm sure there is a difference, but all info I've found does not give me a clear answer. Hoping someone can tell me very clearly these two... In my Chinese book one of the exercises is to choose from 突然 and 忽然。
Any help is greatly appreciated.

For your reference:
Thanks for your link. I can never find anything when I use the C-Pod search function, so either you had seen the linked post previously and remembered it... or you are able to use the search functionality much more efficiently than me... if it's the latter of the two, please let me know how :)
ouyangjun, it wasn't too long ago, I was in the discussion myself, and I had a pretty good recollection who had asked the question. So I went searching for it manually (I'm not recommending this. It can be time-consuming). The search function on site couldn't have turned up anything unless you did remember that discussion, because as you see the title of the post mentions no 忽然 no 突然.
But it's been said by other poddies before, the best way, if you want to search and find something on CPod, is to google it.
If I do remember a discussion from the past on a question I'll try to post a link to it. It's my way of trying to get the most use of the existing knowledge on the site for all of us. I also hope it might keep our teachers and other knowledgeable people feeling that their help is truly appreciated, and not a waste of their effort.
