Or something VS. Something like
Would you like something like coffee? VS. Would you like coffee or something?
Is there a meaning difference you feel between them?
Thank you so much as usual.
There is really no difference in meaning. The word "like" is very often misused in conversational English. In the first sentence, it means "such as". Written more formally: Would you like something to drink, such as coffee?Would you like to have some coffee or something else to drink?
