If You Go

Is it a cave or a cavern?

According to speleogists, a cave is usually a cavity in the ground large enough for humans, and that a portion of it will not receive direct sunlight. A cavern is a specific type of cave, naturally formed in soluble rock with speleothems or mineral formations.  While a cavern can be called a cave, all caves cannot be called caverns.
