Trials are a great way of getting to the bottom of a story or event and making a final decision. The word “trial” can be used in various ways depending upon the context. Trial as I refer to it within my definition means examining and deciding a case in a court of law.

Trial is a word that was created in 1436. Originally it referred to the act or process of testing. It was derived from the Anglo-Fr trial, noun formed from the word triet meaning to try. Trial also has the meaning of a sense of examining and deciding a case in a court of law. This definition was first recorded in 1577 and was put into use completely by 1595. When one uses the term trial they are often times referring to trying something out or testing it. For example; referencing a “trial run”. Another example would be trial and error. This would relate to trying something and determining at what point it is necessary to continue to try different things or stick to one that seems to work. You may not know what the outcome of each attempt will be thus trial an error would occur.
