e.g. 1 He shook the warmly proffered hand.
e.g. 2 I didn't think it wise to proffer an opinion.
What is the difference between " proffer" and " offer"? Can I replace " proffer" with " offer" in above two example sentences?
I think " proffer" stresses the move of holding out. So for #1, I can not replace, but #2 is Okay. Right or wrong?
Thanks in advance!:roll:
