It appears there is substantial disagreement amongst the commentators on the question whether the difference between the two words is substantive or only superficial. Certainly we could not say that the difference between the two words is "substantial" since it's only 2 letters. However those 2 letters of difference may nevertheless result in a substantive difference in meaning and usage.
