Synonyms of "Meaning" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre what is the meaning e what does it mean ?
A: They mean exactly the same thing. "What does it mean?" is more common, but both phrases are used, and both sound natural and normal.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre I to write "I can't find the meaning" e "I don't find the meaning " ?
A: I can't find the meaning is the proper way to say it.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre 'who' (not the meaning of "Who "in the sentence "Who you are.",I mean the another meaning of it.) e 'whose' e 'whom' ?
A: "The girl who leapt through time." The word 'who' shows that the person who 'leapt through time' is 'the girl'. If you just said "The girl leapt through time" that would be past tense. However the girl who leapt through time would be her title or name. (I hope you understand) if you used "whose" it wouldnt make sense "the girl whose leapt through time" because 'whose' is a word which shows that the next part of the sentance belongs to 'the girl'. A sentance with whose in: "whose shoes are these?" (who do these shoes belong to) Lastly, whom has the same meaning of who (in the meaning of who you are talking about) it is not used as much because it sounds very formal. you normally read it in important documents or old stories for example. An example: "whom did he marry?" (Who did he marry?) Please ask if you have aby questions.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre meaning e sense ?
A: Meaning its the translation in other language; sense its when something is illogical
Q: Qual é a diferença entre meaning of the coordinator OR called exclusive e the one called inclusive ?
A: Exclusive or means that you can have A or B, but you can't have both A and B.
Inclusive or means that you can have A or B, and you can also have both A and B.

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? The meaning behind this phrase
A: @lana103 After analyzing and reading some comments, she's also being careful not to be too daring. For example, in a relationship, it is always better to wait longer to say ''I love you”, however, she is tired of not being able to do it, that is why she is always on tiptoes to keep the water warm. That's why I believe ''let me under your skin'', can mean that she wants to be closer without being uncomfortable saying “I love you”

These is my point of view, though
