Testimony

In the law, testimony is a form of evidence that is obtained from a witness who makes a solemn statement or declaration[?] of fact. Testimony may be verbal or written, and it is usually made by oath[?] or affirmation under penalty of perjury. Unless a witness is testifying as an expert witness, testimony in the form of opinions or inferences is generally limited to those opinions or inferences which are rationally based on the perceptions of the witness and are helpful to a clear understanding of the witness' testimony.
