What the difference between 程 and 程度?

I haven't been able to find any using my dictionary.

1 Answer 1


ほど is usually used as particle, whereas 程度 is a noun, e.g.

A's degree is not as high as B's.

ほど can be used as noun, but I would say 程度 is more common. The dictionary definitions show that the meaning is not that different (e.g. 大辞泉 has 許容される限度。 for 程度; 大辞林 has 許される程度。限度。 for ほど).
