- The good news was foreshadowed by several disturbing events.
- The good news was adumbrated by several disturbing events.
I am trying to see which word is better to use. Is there a (subtle) distinction between the two words? I know the word "adumbrated" is more formal as opposed to using the word "foreshadowed", but that word sounds better, in my opinion; or at least, it sounds better in the particular sentence as shown in the sandbox.
