    Sea是一般較小的海, 臨著陸地, 類似我們平常去玩的海邊

    新竹外海, 基隆外海...或海島邊緣的海域 例如:南海、日本海(Japan Sea) 、北海

    ocean是指大洋, 像大西洋,太平洋。大部分都在大陸與大陸之間

    例如:太平洋 (Pacific Ocean)、大西洋(Atlantic Ocean)

    DON"T copy from the first result:

    If you can find it quickly, so can others

    DON'T copy from unproven sources:

    Opinions are not facts, not to mention it may come from someone whose logic is as illogical as your to the civilized world.

    DO read the content before reposting

    - By reposting as your own, you will be held liable for errors made by the original poster.

    For example, "It has no boundaries or limitless volume" is a contradiction in itself.

    Master 26535! In my opinion, the situation in your comment, people use "sea" interchangeably with "ocean".

    2012-06-25 21:18:11 補充:

    Like this word "oceanology" or "oceanography", why is not "sea-logy" or "sea-graphy". After all, to majority of people, "sea" is already big enough. On the other hand, "sea" probably is an easier word to use than "ocean".
