Deviant and Deviate :



The technical term used by professionals to label someone whose behavior deviates from the norm is “deviate,” but if you want to tease a perv friend you may as well call him a “deviant”—that’s what almost everybody else says.


In your sociology class, however, you might want to stick with “deviate.”
