    Default To reach an agreement

    Hi,
    Does someone know if there is a collocation for "agreement" other than "to reach an agreement"?

    Thx in advance M.

    Hi,

    If the word 'agreement' denotes a formal document legally binding for its parties, the following collocations are frequently used:
    to make an agreement
    to conclude an agreement
    to execute an agreement
    to initial / sign an agreement

    I'm not sure if the above will be of any help, since you probably want to use the word 'agreement' in its more general meaning.

    Regards,
    TeeKay

    Teekay, thx for your help. But as you said I need "agreement" in its general meaning.

    I searched here: http://view.byu.edu/
    There wasn't much to add, a few things like 'hammer out'and Álinch', but no true synonyms beyond 'come to'.

    Hi Maeve.

    'have an agreement'
    'break an agreement'
    'be in agreement'
