Let’s analyze the composition of “consent”
The word consists of two etyma, “con” meaning “together“, and “sent” meaning “sense“. It’s very easy to figure out the meaning given the etyma. When your ideas or senses go together with others’, then it means you agree with them, is it? Hereupon, we are very close to the definition of “consent,” which is “to agree to sth or give your permission for sth.”
Now it’s your time to figure out the meanings of the following words.
Please write down your answers in the comments down below!
Look forward to it!
Have a great day!
