What's the difference between horloge and pendule?
What's the difference between horloge and pendule? All I know so far is what is given on Collins English-French dictionary: https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-french/clock.
"Horloge" is strictly speaking a timepiece of any sort, but is used for a clock on a building, or an electronic display, although an alarm clock is "un réveil". "Une pendule" is strictly speaking a clock which uses "un pendule" (a pendulum, note difference in gender), but is generally used for a wall clock, even if it is electric.
