Usage: To Affirm, Asseverate, Aver, Protest. We affirm when we declare a thing as a fact or a proposition.

We protest in a more public manner and with the energy of perfect sincerity. People asseverate in order to produce a conviction of their veracity; they aver when they are peculiarly desirous to be believed; they protest when they wish to free themselves from imputations, or to produce a conviction of their innocence.
