Usage: An apology, in the original sense of the word, was a
pleading off from some charge or imputation, by
explaining and defending one's principles or conduct.
It therefore amounted to a vindication. One who offers
an apology, admits himself to have been, at least
apparently, in the wrong, but brings forward some
palliating circumstance, or tenders a frank
acknowledgment, by way of reparation. We make an
apology for some breach of propriety or decorum (like
rude expressions, unbecoming conduct, etc.), or some
deficiency in what might be reasonably expected. We
offer an excuse when we have been guilty of some
breach or neglect of duty; and we do it by way of
extenuating our fault, and with a view to be forgiven.
When an excuse has been accepted, an apology may
still, in some cases, be necessary or appropriate.
“An excuse is not grounded on the claim of innocence,
but is rather an appeal for favor resting on some
collateral circumstance. An apology mostly respects
the conduct of individuals toward each other as
equals; it is a voluntary act produced by feelings of
decorum, or a desire for the good opinion of others.”
