Synonyms of "Vow" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre vow e swear e pledge ?
A: "Vow" is very formal and rarely used. "Marriage vows" are about the only times you hear it in regular conversation.
"Swear" is much more common, and can sometimes be swapped for "promise." "I saw him break it, I swear."
"Pledge" is a little more similar to vow, and most of the time you hear it, it's involved with making a promise to a society you're joining. One use of it that every American knows is "I pledge allegiance to the flag..."
Q: Qual é a diferença entre vow e swear e pledge ?

“I vow to learn Chinese next year”
“I swear I can learn Chinese in a year”

A pledge is a more serious commitment

“I pledge allegiance to the emperor”
Q: Qual é a diferença entre to vow e take a vow e make a vow ?
A: There is no real difference. Perhaps “make a vow” can clarify that you’re the one initiating it, and “take a vow” can mean you are agreeing to an already declared vow. You can use them interchangeably.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre vow e pleadge e oath ?
A: A lot of the times, I think the context is what makes it different.

When you get married, you take 「vows」. ("I promise to love you..." etc)

In the US, you 「pledge」 allegiance to the flag.

When you testify in a court of law, you're under 「oath」. (One hand in the bible, the other hand raised)

And if you read the wikipedia page for "Pledge of Allegiance", it says: "The Pledge of Allegiance is an oath (...)"

So they are more or less the same, don't worry too much about it.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre vow e oath ?
A: They have the same meaning, however 'vow' can be a verb or noun, while 'oath' is only a noun.

For example,
- I vow to do something.
- I made a vow.
- I made an oath.

But you can't say you "oath to do something."

Other questions about "Vow"

Q: I swear to you. I will vow to you not to lie anymore soa natural?
A: × I will vow to you not to lie anymore
✓ I won't lie anymore

I swear and I vow is repetition, so lose that and it sounds better. Vow isn't used much anyway, I can't think of a normal usage other than wedding vows (promises between the bride and groom).

It's still an odd concept - a liar swearing not to lie - but other than that it sounds ok with my edit

A: I disagree. I find "never to repeat" perfectly natural, albeit slightly more literary. I also consulted Google Ngram Viewer in order to establish the frequency of both phrases in literature, and it indicated that "never to repeat" is far more common:
