Pronunciation : Re*move" (r-mv")
Part of Speech : v.
Definition : Defn: To change place in any manner, or to make a change in place; to move or go from one residence, position, or place to another. Till Birnam wood remove to Dunsinane, I can not taint with fear. Shak.

Note: The verb remove, in some of its application, is synonymous with move, but not in all. Thus we do not apply remove to a mere change of posture, without a change of place or the seat of a thing. A man moves his head when he turns it, or his finger when he bends it, but he does not remove it. Remove usually or always denotes a change of place in a body, but we never apply it to a regular, continued course or motion. We never say the wind or water, or a ship, removes at a certain rate by the hour; but we say a ship was removed from one place in a harbor to another. Move is a generic term, including the sense of remove, which is more generally applied to a change from one station or permanent position, stand, or seat, to another station.
