    Exclamation Accession or Accretion?

    "That version was printed with additional chapters. The other version, however, was printed without additions"

    Where I have additions, I want to use a synonym. I've found these two: accretions and accessions.

    Which should I use? I would go with accretions... Don't know if accessions really is a synonym for this situation.

    Neither of them works for me, and I think that 'additions' is the natural choice, though you could get round the problem by using 'any' or a term like addenda/coda, etc, if appropriate..
