Thread: Forgot a word

    Default Forgot a word

    What is one single word for:

    when people discuss something together to ensure that they are on the same level of understanding.

    I used to use that word. It sounds like collaboration, but I can't remember what it is.

    Can somebody help?

    Calibration is a mechanical operation to ensure measurement devices are accurate. It is not used for social or interpersonal interactions.

    I thought calibration is just for measuring instruments or machinery. I never heard it used for communication. Is it correct to use it in this context?

    Are you sure it's not concord or concordance?
