   Syn: Continuous, Continual.

   Usage: Continuous is the stronger word, and denotes that the
          continuity or union of parts is absolute and
          uninterrupted; as, a continuous sheet of ice; a
          continuous flow of water or of argument. So Daniel
          Webster speaks of "a continuous and unbroken strain of
          the martial airs of England." Continual, in most
          cases, marks a close and unbroken succession of
          things, rather than absolute continuity. Thus we speak
          of continual showers, implying a repetition with
          occasional interruptions; we speak of a person as
          liable to continual calls, or as subject to continual
          applications for aid, etc. See Constant.
          [1913 Webster]
