Hello everyone, I've come across another literary hurdle. I'm confused when to use 'precipitated' and 'perspired' in context of an event. I ran some internet searches but couldn't find descent examples. When is one more superior over the other, or fundamentally correct? Once again, thanks WritingForum members! -Spine Cleaver Added comments below: A friend who I have in history was able to give me some good examples: "The skirmishes at Springfield precipitated the full scale incursion by the Virginian militia" "After what perspired on Colony B5-19, the Colonial High Command was terrified of the oncoming alien onslaught." I'm still unsure of how to implement and these words in my writings. I find at times they could come in handy. Any literary geniuses out there who can help me out!?
