  • stimulant or stimulus?While both these words have meanings relating to something's effect on activity, they are distinct. A stimulant is a substance that increases or speeds up bodily activity ( tisanes may appeal to people who find ordinary tea too much of a stimulant | a heart and respiratory stimulant). Stimulus, on the other hand, denotes something that causes a particular physical response ( the syndrome causes bizarre responses to any stimulus to the hemiplegic side), or something that acts as an incentive to activity or development ( the authorities are convinced of the value of investment as a stimulus to growth).
