# What, if any, are the differences between hemiwicking and wicking?

I'm encountering these two terms, but their uses seem to be different, and there's little documentation out there defining the terms.

Here is an example definition I've found of Wicking:

Wicking is the spontaneous flow of a liquid in a porous substrate, driven by capillary forces.$^1$

Here is an example definition I've found of hemiwicking (notice little difference between the one above):

Hemiwicking refers to the spreading of a liquid on a rough hydrophilic surface driven by capillarity.$^2$

Below is a typical depiction showing Wenzel wetting (a), Cassie-Baxter wetting (B), and hemiwicking(c).$^3$ My assumption would be that Wenzel wetting would actually be an example of wicking?
