Which one of the above two verbs is most appropriate in the following sentence:
I climbed up a ladder then the ladder ( slid/slipped) along the wall since the floor was wet.
Should I be using the verb (to slip or to slide) ?
You can slip on ice, but once you've slipped, if you keep moving, you are sliding. You can slip on ice (fall over) without sliding any distance. You can also slide along the ice without slipping (if that's what you're trying to do).
