From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Syn: Dexterity; adroitness; expertness; art; aptitude; ability.

Usage: {Skill}, {Dexterity}, {Adroitness}. Skill is more intelligent, denoting familiar knowledge united to readiness of performance. Dexterity, when applied to the body, is more mechanical, and refers to habitual ease of execution. Adroitness involves the same image with dexterity, and differs from it as implaying a general facility of movement (especially in avoidance of danger or in escaping from a difficalty). The same distinctions apply to the figurative sense of the words. A man is skillful in any employment when he understands both its theory and its practice. He is dexterous when he maneuvers with great lightness. He is adroit in the use od quick, sudden, and well-directed movements of the body or the mind, so as to effect the object he has in view.

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:

skill

noun

1: an ability that has been acquired by training [syn: {skill}, {accomplishment}, {acquirement}, {acquisition}, {attainment}]

2: ability to produce solutions in some problem domain; "the skill of a well-trained boxer"; "the sweet science of pugilism" [syn: {skill}, {science}]
