    When one thing is “joined” or “joint”, it is attached or connected to another thing. When a group of people come together or collaborate, they are “jointly” working together.

    However, when a single person or a single thing is joined to another, they are said to be “joined” together. A simple example would be two people holding hands. They are “joined” together by being joined to each other. If you hold the hand of someone who is already holding a hand, then they are “joined” to the person who is holding their hand. If a tree holds a leaf, then the tree is “joined” to the leaf. This is the difference between “joined” and “joint”.
