RISERAISE




Common Stumbling Blocks - Peculiar Constructions - Misused Forms.

These verbs are very often confounded. Rise is to move or pass upward
in any manner; as to "rise from bed;" to increase in value, to improve in
position or rank, as "stocks rise;" "politicians rise;" "they have risen
to honor."

Raise is to lift up, to exalt, to enhance, as "I raise the table;"
"He raised his servant;" "The baker raised the price of bread."
