What is the difference between 'iceberg' and 'glacier'?
Are they the same?
An iceberg is a large chunk of ice that's broken off from a glacier. Here are the definitions from Dictionary.com.
an extended mass of ice formed from snow falling and accumulating over the years and moving very slowly, either descending from high mountains, as in valley glaciers, or moving outward from centers of accumulation, as in continental glaciers.
a large floating mass of ice, detached from a glacier and carried out to sea."
