No thanks for an unhelpful reply.
Yes of course they are distinct terms in English. Look them up

There is a distinction in English? (Other than politics where
autonomous means not-autonomous)
This question raises some interesting, er, questions-- I'd love
to know what the Tibetan language specialists on this list think.
Is it true "that the Tibetan lexicon made no distinction between
the English words for 'autonomy' and 'independence''' ?
