recollect, remember

recollect, remember
Вспомнить, припомнить. Эти два глагола имеют практически одно и то же значение, но глагол recollect предполагает, что вам удалось припомнить что-либо после определённых усилий, тогда как to remember предполагает спонтанность. Это довольно тонкое, но важное различие.

At last I have been able to recollect what it was you asked me if I remembered. — В конце концов мне удалось припомнить то, о чём ты спрашивал, если, конечно, меня не подвела память.
