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 : 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 !
