What is the difference between assassination and murdered? President Kennedy was assassinated. John Lennon was murdered. I never saw it written that Rev. King was assassinated, he too was murdered. Sadat was assassinated and Versace was murdered? What factors determine which word is appropriate?

Assassination is when you’re killed and don’t know it and murdered is killed in something like a war. =)

assassination implies that someone was procured to kill someone, whereas murder implies that someone was killed

Assassination is killilng someone as part of a political statement.Murder is killing someone for reasons other than politics. I would say that John Lennon was assassinated.

from what I can see, important public figures, killed for political reasons, are assassinated whereas murder refers to the rest of us. Take a look at the follwoing defintions, they have some good distinctions. hope that helpedDefinitions of assassination on the Web: * character assassination: an attack intended to ruin someone’s reputation * murder of a public figure by surprise attack wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn * In its most common use, assassination has come to mean the killing of an important person. An assassin — one who carries out the assassination — is usually motivated by ideological or political reasons. Other motivations may be money in the case of a hitman; opposition to a person’s beliefs or belief systems in the case of a fanatic; orders from a government that are often carried about by a subversive agent such as a spy; or loyalty to a competing leader or group. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination * [country or state]–[city] loc.gov/rr/print/tgm1/app-b.html * of the Coptic prime minister Butrus Ghali by a young Muslim nationalist. One of its repercussions was a new Coptic mistrust of the Muslim Egyptian nationalists. A Coptic Congress met in Asyut in 1911 to voice specifically Coptic political demands, which were rejected by a rival Muslim Congress convened in Heliopolis that year. 6 bartleby.com/67/1374.html * The killing of a political leader or other public figure. regentsprep.org/Regents/global/vocab/topic_alpha.cfm * Two Presidents of the United States have been assassinated,—Abraham Lincoln by J Wilkes Booth, and James A. Garfield by Guiteau. The latter was called a crank or half crazy. There has never been any real conspiracy for assassination in this country, on a large scale. Booth had confederates, but represented no secret cabal, like the Russian Nihilists. people.virginia.edu/~rmf8a/gaskell/poldict.htmDefinitions of murder on the Web: * kill intentionally and with premeditation; “The mafia boss ordered his enemies murdered” * unlawful premeditated killing of a human being by a human being * mangle: alter so as to make unrecognizable; “The tourists murdered the French language” wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn * Murder is both a legal and a moral term, that are not always coincident. It may be legal to kill, but still murder in the moral sense. Opponents of the death penalty argue that it is simply murder by the state. Proponents of limited government argue that moral murder is never legal murder unless and until the government meets the limits and standards required of it, such as due process, proof beyond a reasonable doubt, trial by jury, appellate review, etc. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder * Murder! a 1930 film directed by Alfred Hitchcock based on a novel and play called Enter Sir John by Clemence Dane and Helen Simpson.

The word “assasination” is used more in a political perspective or intent behind it. While the word “murdered” is used on a more private or personal perspective. So, usually, you find the word “assasination” in the political news reporting as compared to the word “murder”.Amir Ali Tayyabqurango.com

an assasination is planned by people with intelligence, where a murder can committed by someone with a deranged mind.

an assassination implies more proficiency, also usually one person’s effort (a sniper in most cases), while murder seems more incriminating to the action of killing, assassination may sound less ‘sorry’ for the kill, also assasination must be planned and intended, but a murder may not be preplanned.an assassin needs to be trained and proficient at what he does, a murderer does not necessarly have that, an assassin does it for money or politics, a murderer can do it for any reason including those, or simply cause they are jelous, furious, seeking revenge or any other psycho reason.. also there is mass murder but not mass assasination😀
