Visual vs. Visional

with 2 comments

What is the difference between the two?

I heard that visual refers to what they EYES see, as opposed to visional, which refers to what the MIND sees.  Is there any truth to this?

How can “visional” be used in a sentence?

Last question: Can both words be considered adjective forms of the noun “vision?”

Thank you! :)

  1. First I want to apologize for my bad english, it’s not my native language :lol:

    I think there’s some truth in your definiton of visual and visional, because material things are visual as they can be seen with the eye and [being] visional means having an idea in the mind, something that is visional is imagined and not seen with the eye.

    additionally I think they’re both adjectives of the noun “vision”.

  2. Surely ‘visional’ should be ‘visionary’. I think ‘visional’ sounds like a lazy, made-up word; certainly not an adjective.
