    bring out

    Hi,

    Does "bring out" means "publish" here?

    Behavioral scientists Michael Ross and Garth Fletcher found—bearing out Isen’s research—that when people are in a negative emotional state it will cause their perceptions to be more cynical.



    Thanks

    Re: bring out

    However, bring out can mean publish.

    Thanks
    I don't see "bring out" there.

    The phrase "bring out" doesn't mean "bearing out." The "ing" in "bring" doesn't mean it's a gerund. The gerund form is "bringing" - like "ringing" and "singing."

    Sometimes "bring out" means "publish," but not in that sentence. That wouldn't make sense.

    "Bring out" can mean "emphasize": That shirt really brings out the blue in your eyes.

    It can also be meant literally. For instance, in the middle ages during plague epidemics, when people carried corpses from the house to the street it was called "bringing out the dead" - literally bringing bodies out of houses.

    It can also mean "reveal" or "expose": She'll believe him unless we bring out some of his other lies.

    "Bearing out" means "proving": The new study of climate change bears out what I've been saying all along.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
