Wizard=Magician? Edit

Wikipedia claims wizard is a synonym for magician. Is this correct/acceptable in English?Because there are several references to wizards and sorcerers for that matter. - Kennelly (talk) 18:41, January 23, 2016 (UTC)

Sometimes. If you mean as in an illusionist, then no, it's not the same. But if you mean somebody who really makes magic stuff happen, then it is. -- LauraCC (talk) 19:09, January 23, 2016 (UTC)
