Which is correct: 'emergency meeting' or 'emergent meeting'? I have heard people using both for the same meaning.
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
Thanks for your answers. However, I did a little bit of 'googling', and I found out that some do use the word "emergent meeting" Here are some instances:
1. Minutes of the EMERGENT MEETING OF THE
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE CHAMBER
BJP asks PM to convene emergent meet on Amarnath deaths How many dead pilgrims carried mandatory health certificates?
3. The meeting of a Lodge called to elect a candidate, and confer the Degrees in a case of emergency, or for any other sudden and unexpected cause, has been called an Emergent Meetings The term is not very common, but it has been used by Brother W. S. Mitchell and a few other writers.
Just a few examples. So, thanks again for all your replies. I hope my thread somehow gives you a little something as well
This is the thing about Google. In collecting everything it's bound to rake up a lot of rubbish. (Which is not to say that rubbish is not information-bearing; it just takes some sifting.)
