[1620–30; < French, Middle French]
syn: perspiration, sweat refer to moisture exuded by animals and people from the pores of the skin. perspiration is the more polite word, and is often used overfastidiously by those who consider sweat coarse: a deodorant that retards perspiration. However, sweat is a strong word and in some cases is more appropriate: the sweat of one's brow. sweat is always used when referring to animals: Sweat dripped from the horse's flanks. It may also be used metaphorically of objects: Sweat forms on apples after they are gathered.
