Fervent vs. fervid
Some English usage authorities draw a distinction between fervent and fervid, saying that while both mean having great passion or zeal, fervid feelings are more extreme and perhaps irrational than fervent feelings. In other words, fervidness is ferventness to an excessive degree. While this distinction might be useful, it is not consistently borne out in real-world usage. The word are generally interchangeable, with fervent being the more common form by a large margin.
