Structure Legend
Structure
Number/counter + くらい or ぐらい
[くらい・ぐらい is more often used to describe amounts, while ころ・ごろ is almost always exclusively used to highlight a point in time]

[However, ころ・ごろ and くらい・ぐらい are interchangeable when referring to more specific times (○8時ごろ ○8時くらい), but くらい・ぐらい cannot be used when referring to broader periods of time (○子供のころ ❌子供のくらい)]

[Conversely, ころ・ごろ cannot be used to estimate lengths (○2メートルぐらい ❌2メートルごろ)]
