Yeah, I know but I don't have example with those words. Of course the meaning of them I know in my language,

In my language all of them has another meanings too, but all of them are the same meaning "PULAR".
When I found "PULAR" my dictionary gave me: Jump - spring - skip - leap, etc.

I hope you understand.

JUMP, the most general, implies a muscular propelling, or any action resembling a muscular propelling, of the body upward or to a spot other than the one one is in, whether upward, on a level, or below one, or over some obstacle *jump with fright* *jump three feet across a brook* *jump up onto a platform* *jump down from the truck* *jump over a wall* LEAP, often interchangeable with JUMP, generally suggests a much greater muscular propulsion or a more spectacular result *leap a high fence* *leap down from a platform* *go leaping across a field* SPRING adds to JUMP or LEAP the idea of elasticity, lightness, or grace, stressing more the movement than the going to or over *spring up into the air* *spring out of a cage* *a deer springing across the open field*

jump --  squat down-  push with BOTH feet, land forward on both feet


leap:   scrunch down a bit, push of with ONE foot,  land on the other foot

spring:   like jump, but straight up.


 hop:  like walking, but on one foot only

 skip-  a fast walk, with the feet shuffling along the ground.
