          a "standing" fact or occurence; as, liable to constant
          interruptions; constantly called for. Continual, in
          its absolute sense, coincides with continuous. See

          thing as occuring in steady and rapid succession; as,
          a round of continual calls; continually changing.
          Perpetual denotes, in its absolute sense, what
          literally never ceases or comes to an end; as,

          hyperbolically, and denotes that which rarely ceases;
