Mensagem:  Hi there!

Are these words interchangeable? It seemed to me they´re slightly different... what about collocation?

several /ˈsev. ə r. ə l/ /-ɚ-/ determiner , pronoun
some; an amount that is not exact but is fewer than many
I've seen 'Gone with the Wind' several times. 


various /ˈveə.ri.əs/ /ˈver.i-/ adjective
many different
We had various problems on our journey, including a puncture.
