The verb collaborate means to cooperate or work jointly with others.
The verb corroborate means to strengthen, support, or confirm with evidence.

Interesting that rabbit chose only the most narrow (and edited) usage of the two words.
Obviously you have not read many, or any, judicial rulings.


Your definitions of the two words are correct. Ok, great, shows you are paying attention. Lets have another look at your use of the word collaboration:

quote:
There has never been any collaboration of the alleged accusations against Brett Kavanaugh.


"Collaboration of the alleged accusations" would mean that the accusations were working together in a joint effort.

"Corroboration of the alleged accusations" would mean verification of the accusations.

Pretty simple. I think you get it now.
Nice to see that you are actually concerned about accuracy for a change. Good work!

You narrowed the use of those words to fit your argument.
That is dishonest.

Exactly how did I "narrow the use" of collaborate and corroborate? Would you care to corroborate that statement?

I carefully and clearly defined both words, in as simple a manner as possible, then showed how they are used.

Tell you what, why don't you and I collaborate on figuring out the proper usage, by offering corroboration of our differing views on how these words function.

I have corroborated the defintion and usage of both words by posting a basic English lesson from a remedial language site.

I welcome your corroboration of your concept of the correct usage of the words collaborate and corroborate from any source you trust. If you would rather regard this as an argument of opinion, rather than a clarification of the rudimentary mechanics of our language, I will respect that you feel that our collaboration is not a worthwhile endeavor, and leave you to understand English as you deem fit for your level of discourse.

At least you don't come around and yell at people for using English properly, like LUKE.

And you get points for admitting you were mistaken in referring to Ms. Ramirez as Ms. Rodriguez. That showed good sportsmanship.
