We have kept that promise. The Latin compactus is also the origin of the adjective compact, which is used to describe things smaller than others, which take up little space or have parts close to each other. However, this compactus is the past participle of the Latin compingere, meaning „to assemble”. The verb is a combination of com- and pangere („to attach”). The adjective is unwrapped in 14th century English, and in the 17th century. In the nineteenth century, the associated name is fixed, which refers to compact things (modern applications are for cosmetic cases or automobiles).

The words agreement and agreement can be used in similar contexts, but agree, more commonly used by opinions, judgments, desires, or interests than by humans, implies complete agreement. The noun agreement means „agreement” or „conformity”. It often occurs in legal, commercial or political contexts where it is synonymous with contract and other similar words for a formal agreement. I do not recall anything being said about that in our agreement. Informal discussions are usually not so serious, but some ideas are presented that require your full support. In this case, use the following examples of alternative expressions to „I agree.” a response expressing consent or permission Accord appears in Old English with the meaning „to reconciliation” or „to bring into conform”, borrowed from its Anglo-French etymon acorder, a word related to the Latin concordāre meaning „to agree”. This primordial sense of agreement is transitive, and in modern English it still occurs, but rarely.
Its transitive meaning of „to give or give as the case may be, due or merit” – as in „Students pay tribute to the teacher” – is more common. This nominal meaning is often used without a qualifying adjective (such as good or bad) to indicate that something is being bought or sold at a price below its actual value – in other words, a good deal: „At this price, the house is a good deal” or „We have a good deal on tickets for our flight”. In Anglo-French, agrément referred to an agreement agreed between two or more parties, as well as the act or fact of understanding, agreeing or agreeing (more on these words „c” below). Late Middle English adopted the word as approval with the same meanings that are widely used today. The modern spelling, accord, was used at the same time as the agreement. In U.S. law, surety bond specifically refers to a formal written agreement by which a person agrees to perform a specific act (for example, to appear in court or to fulfill obligations under a contract). Failure to perform the action forces the person to pay a sum of money or lose money on deposit. Typically, this is a guarantee and the bond makes the guarantee liable for the consequences of the debtor`s conduct. Bails are often granted to persons suspected of having committed a crime („The accused was released on $10,000 bail”), but anyone required to perform a task may be required to provide a bond. If you remember, harmony is also synonymous with grammatical agreement. Saying „I agree” to an opinion is something you encounter on a daily basis.
There are other ways to say I agree using body language or alternative words to „I agree.” As a verb, compromise refers to the renunciation of something you want in order to reach an amicable agreement („The union and the employer have agreed on a compromise”). Another meaning is to „denounce mistrust, discredit, or misdeed,” as in „The actor`s career was compromised by his politically incorrect tweets” or „The editor would not compromise his principles.” And as mentioned above, it can mean putting someone or something in danger, danger, or serious consequences. Confidential information, national security or the immune system could be labeled „compromised.” During the 17th century, the cartel referred to a written agreement between warring nations, particularly on the treatment and exchange of prisoners. This usage is illustrated by Bishop Gilbert Burnet in his History of His Own Time (1734): „By a cartel settled between the two armies, all prisoners were to be redeemed at a fixed price and within a limited time.” Another well-known use of the convention is in law and policy, where it is used as a term for an agreement between two or more groups (as countries or political organizations) to regulate issues that affect everyone – for example, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. There are also the Geneva Conventions, a series of four international treaties (1864, 1906, 1929, 1949) signed in Geneva, Switzerland, which establish the humanitarian principles according to which signatory states must treat military and civilian nationals of an enemy in time of war.
