Perpetrate (vt)

Here is a context clues worksheet on the verb perpetrate. It means “to bring about or carry out (as a crime or deception),” “commit,” and “to produce, perform, or execute (something likened to a crime).”

You use this verb only transitively, so don’t forget your direct object: what did your perpetrator perpetrate? A crime? A pun? A fashion faux pas? Your call, but just be sure for the sake of good grammar and elegance of style that you make that call.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
