#139922 - 02/20/05 08:16 AM Let there be light
Loc: Seattle, Washington, USA
In another thread, Of Troy sez: "It didn't open but was positioned on south facing wall of the house, and illuminated the room it was in."
It occurs to me that I used the verb "illumine" and the verb "illuminate" pretty much indiscriminately. I'm not talking about what monks do to manuscripts here. I am talking about the light thing. What, if any, are the differences between these two verbs?
