When To Use Agreeance Vs Agreement
If you agree with me, I will make those changes. “There was no agreement between theory and measurement” Nostun, now rarely. The act or state of consent; Agreement. The point of the article is not to say “don`t use the abstract Noun chord.” English is blessed with an abundance of wealth, but if what you meant was approval and you used approval, because it sounded like what you wanted, but he knew nothing about the deal, it is something that English users need to be aware of. We almost ended up with “okay,” and then some damn Redneck had to mix “agreement” and “acceptance” and we`re back where we started. “The results of my experience are consistent with Michelson`s and with the law of general relativity.” That is an interesting question. Although the word “agreeance” appears in some dictionaries as synonymous with agreement, it appears in the list of errors in the book “Common Errors in English Usage”: one of the strange abstract names that have appeared recently is the word consent, which says, “I agree with this position.” A Nounon is a person, a place or a thing. An abstract nominus is a concept. You can`t see, touch, smell, taste or hear a chord like that, see a truck, hear a noise, taste a sandwich or smell smoke. English has many ways of making abstract names. The extension – ance is one of them with – ion and – ment. To anticipate an objection, yes, I am aware that consent is an old English word that dates back to at least the 16th century.
But I also suppose that his ascent is not based on a re-appreciation of an ancient word, although rarely used. Rather, I assume that the word is used because people have forgotten or do not know consent. To anticipate another objection, yes, I celebrate the flexibility, adaptability and inventiveness of the English language, but it is one thing to form a new and useful word to meet a need. But I shout when English words do because they don`t know or have not forgotten a very good and normal word. There is nothing wrong with an agreement. It is not archaism, even if it is a consensus. The use of consent is, in most cases, only linguistic antinomianism.
