Let's say there is a trial in some court:
1. At trial, witnesses gave conflicting testimony.
2. During trial, witnesses gave conflicting testimony.
Is there any differences between "at trial" and "during trial" that would change the meanings of these two sentences?
Okay. "At trial" is more literary than "during (the) trial"?
Not particularly. emsr2d2 did not say that.
