I noticed that, in the dictionary, the words True, Right and Correct can have a meaning resembling accurate or exact. ODO says:
True (adj) = accurate or exact.
Right (adj) = true or correct as a fact.
Correct (adj)= free from error; in accordance with fact or truth.
and I'm writing about allegations made against a politician. I'm considering saying:
The allegations made against [politician] were true (or correct or right).
I would like to know:
Is there a difference between those three? Would you imagine that allegations made against the politician are true has a slightly different meaning from allegations made against the politician are right or allegations made against the politician are true? (I have searched in ELU and read the post right vs. correct which doesn't help much to identify the difference particularly in this context).
All of those three words have other meanings in the dictionary. For example, right has other meanings like denoting or worn on the side of a person's body which is toward the east when they are facing north.
If all these three words are essentially the same meaning, is there any reason I should avoid using one word or the other?
