What is the difference between dungaree and denim?

Dungaree appears to be a subset of denim and typically refers to the most common style of blue denim.  Typically only the warp threads are pre-dyed with the traditional coloring agent indigo, the weft threads are left uncolored (white), resulting in the unique fade patterns of the fabric. Denim refers to cotton twill which may be warp dyed, undyed, or dyed after weaving.  Denim may be 2x1 or 3x1 twill.
