Shaver=men use these Razor=more commonly used by women Ex. For Shaver- “My shaver cut my face" Only men shave their faces. Ex. For Razor- My razor cut my leg. Women usually shave their legs. Also, shaver isn't an actual word.
Traditionally: Shave is a verb and razor a noun. Although most people now say shaver.
Fia_Bui, I'm not sure where you come from, but where I come from (England) I am fairly sure that most people DO NOT say "shaver". Maybe you should make clear what region you are speaking for, as such statements can be very misleading for non-native English users.
In the United States the term razor is generally used for something non-electric. A "shaver" is almost always an electric razor.
Funny, I was born and lived in the US 3/4 of my life, but have always said and heard "razor" for both electric and non-electric razors, never ran across "shaver".
The US may be a large company but I'm guessing that shaver is a term used in a small region. Just sounds ridiculous. Never heard it before where I live.
Shaver according to Bic.
Wow ms Vanessa from England was a little harsh!? Maybe she should learn how humans write with a kinder tone or don't write at all. Bic the razor company seems to think shaver is correct. PS: WRITING IS CAPS SIGNALS YELLING in case not everyone knows that.
I heard in Latin America they say rasuradora but in Spain there is another word for the razor. What is it?
In Spain we use Maquinilla de afeitar for Razor machine Cuchilla de afeitar for Razor
I'm wondering why some recent inventions have the suffix -dora, such as razors, washing machines and dryers. Is this a theme for Spanish or is it coincidental? Thanks!
