Like/similar to - debyg or fel?

In one lesson it says fel, and in the other lesson it says debyg - both are described as meaning ‘like’ in the sense ‘similar to’.
How do I know which to use when?
Confused. Have I missed something?

You’ll get used to these from context, not by learning rules about them - they’re two very similar words, so you’ll be understood most of the time whichever way you go :sunny:

It might help to think that ‘fel’ can also be used sometimes where you’d use ‘as’ in English - fel rheol, as a rule, fel ddudes i, as I said.

But there is a certain amount of unavoidable overlap between them, which means the easiest possible solution is not to worry, and let exposure and context sort it out for you :sunny:
