Emulate & Imitate

Content Ad 002

Imitate means to reproduce someone’s behavior or looks. Emulate is a more specialized word with a purely positive function, meaning to try to equal or match. Thus if you try to climb the same mountain your big brother did, you’re emulating him; but if you copy his habit of sticking peas up his nose, you’re just imitating him.
