    Cannot find the word

    Hello,

    "Issuance" is a word too frequently used as the noun of "issue" in the Pakistan Press but I cannot find the word in the COD.

    Does any such word exist in English?

    With regards
    Abu Saad

    As a British Speaker, I don't use it and haven't come across it here.

    In addition, I agree with tdol. I haven't heard, read, or used the word issuance (pronounced, [I'shu:'Ins]) either, and I speak North American English. In my line of work, which is Education, I'm not used to hearing issurance. The reason being, it's used in Business, mostly. So, if I worked in the Business world, I'd probably use, read, and hear issurance now and then.

    Check out this wonderful site for examples of issurance in North American English: http://search.lycos.com/?src=gc&loc=...e%2Bdictionary

    Mehmet, you seem to have misunderstood the poster's question. It's not about the meaning of issuance per se ; it's about its frequency of occurrence among English dialects. Please take time to read the question before feeling the need to reply.

    All the best,
