What are the differences between Process, Work Package, Task and Activity?

Am i correct if i define in this way:
Process-consists set of task to produce the project output
Task-A task is a work package and a work package can be decomposed into one to many activities. So it means that task=work package.
Activity - A component of work performed during the course of a project

That would be a logical breakdown and seems to be aligned with the PMBOK Guide.  You should probably include your definition in the project documentation as this terminology really varies across project management literature where task and activity are sometimes interchanged (process is pretty well accepted).  Part of the difficulty may be differing common usage of these terms in different native English-speaking countries that participate in the standardization.
