It would be really nice if someone could explain the difference between these two words that both mean ´to hide´. Some example sentences that illustrate the difference would really help. :)


隠す means "hide", but 覆う means "cover", "overlay" and "wrap".

覆い隠す means "to hide something from sight with a cover"
