What are the different nuances, if any, between the words 'unconcealed' and 'revealed'?
"... In addition to that he is caught in a dilemma when he faces a life and death situation for the first time, where his talent becomes unconcealed for him to own.”
“... In addition to that he is caught in a dilemma when he faces a life and death situation for the first time, where his talent becomes revealed for him to own.”
Some background context: the 'talent' in question is the person's talent to fight and survive in a life and death situation. Seeing as the person, before the situation, was you're everyday person who is unaware of their own dormant talent (state of being) because they've never been in a situation that required the awakening of this talent (state of being turned into action) until that point in time, either word, as defined in the Meriam Webster dictionary, works.
In my own ignorant opinion as well, either one works, its just a matter of choosing the one that is more accurate at describing what's occurring.
The word unconcealed is defined as "openly shown" in the Meriam Webster dictionary. In my opinion, it works in the above sentence as the person's fighting talent is exposed or 'openly shown' to the commentator.
The word 'revealed' is defined as "to make (something secret or hidden) publicly or generally known" which again works as the talent was hidden up until the situation where average joe has to fight for his life.
