    Emerge and Recuperate

    Please help me check if I use these words correctly.

    1. Emerge: (V): To appear by coming out from behind something

    EX
    We were ecstatic when the killer whale emerged from the ocean for everyone on the boat to see.

    (V): Become known especially as a result of consideration, examination, and questioning

    EX
    The truth behind Kathy's disappearance finally emerged after the suspect had confessed.

    2. Recuperate (V): to become well again after an illness

    EX.
    A. After Mark's surgery, the recuperation is expected to take at least two months.
    B. Even though Sherri has been getting a medical treatment for mysterious illness, she has yet recuperated.

    THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP!

    Re: Emerge and Recuperate

    Your examples using emerge are OK, though instead of 'emerged from the ocean' I'd say 'surfaced.'


    A. After Mark's surgery, his recuperation is expected to take at least two months.
    B. Even though Sherri has been getting [delete 'a'] medical treatment for a mysterious illness, she has not yet recuperated.

    In future, please ask unrelated questions in separate threads.

    THANK YOU!

    Just to be clear with you said.

    1. Are you saying that I should say "We were ecstatic when the killer whale emerged to the surface for everyone on the boat to see?"

    2. What is wrong with saying she has not yet to recuperate.

    3. What do you mean by an unrelated question?
