Agree or Disagree


- To AGREE and to DISAGREE (opposed to ‘agree') are used either  alone or built with  'with' , 'about', or a subordinate.

ex : I agree with you.

ex : I really agree about what he was suggesting...

ex : They agreed that it was a mistake.

                                            

 

- AGREE and DISAGREE are not bult  with an –ing form.

ex : We didn't agree with him, we don't agree now, and we will never agree...

 

- To AGREE may be  followed by an infinitive clause; then, it has the meaning of  'to accept to' = to agree to = to consent; with that meaning, in the negative form, we use = 'don't let  + verb'

ex : I agree to sign this petition...

ex : They agreed to let their children do what they wanted.

ex : He agreed to see me = willpower to act = to accept to 

ex : I won't let him see me now ! I have no time to waste...

 

: B E W A R E  : The interrogative et negative forms use the DO/DOES  auxiliary  (and  PLEASE, NOT BE - I think no error, a very frequent one... can irritate me  more than this one... )

ex : Do you agree with me ?

ex : I don't agree with you when you say that she's stupid...

ex : I disagree with this suggestion.

 

                           2                         3 

2 : D'accord pour ne pas être d'accord ! Comment s'entendre avec ceux qui ne partagent pas vos valeurs : 

Beware ! Here 'agreeing' isn't an -ing  form, but a gerund = 'the fact of agreeing'.

3 : Il n'est pas nécessaire d'être d'accord avec moi ! Aimez-moi !
