I`ve always used both; If we agree, we should sign the agreement. One shows that we feel that we agree and that we are in favour of ratification of this agreement. I didn`t use it much. To be safe, I will continue to use the “agreement.” Have agreement and approval always meant exactly the same thing? Because there is no feeling and carelessness, is there? Is it possible that history is littered with agreements that were not agreements? The agreement is the act of the agreement. This is an archaism rarely applied correctly today. We almost ended up with “okay,” and then some damn Redneck had to mix “agreement” and “acceptance” and we`re back where we started. “They had an agreement not to interfere in each other`s affairs” It`s 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”: I advance the interpretation that the agreement is to agree on what the truth is: one has the impression of agreeing, so let us pretend to do so. 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.
It`s irritating. “Agreement between experimental observations and theory” “If we agree, we should sign the agreement.” state of approval; Harmony of opinion, statement, action or character; Consent Concord; Compliance how, there is a good agreement between the members of the Council. One of the strange abstract names that has appeared lately is the word consent, because it 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. An agreement is an agreement, a compromise to get the two sides to find common ground.
