    Question Division Approval and Divisional Approval

    Hi,
    What's the difference between "Division Approval" and "Divisional Approval"? Does the latter means "The approval of all divisions"?

    Thanks.

    Hi 5jj,
    Actually both terms haven't appeared in a context. I'm studying linguistics and this came when the instructor illustrated the difference in meaning between them. I just wanted to make sure that the information I receive is correct.

    Thanks

    Without context I don't know exactly what they mean.

    Alright, Here you go. Sam went to the bank to apply for funding a project and he got a Division approval to do that. At the bank he was asked to bring the Divisional approval.

    As if by magic, some context appeared!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Even so, context is vital to our being able to say whether something is natural or not.

    Unfortunately I still don't know what you mean by 'Division(al) Aprroval'. Who or what is the division?

    (Not a Teacher)

    They both mean the same thing to me. You have approval from division leadership, hence "division(al) approval". I think of division here as a level of organization, as in "the 3rd Infantry Division".
