    demand vs. require

    Hallo experts,

    would you rather use the noun ”rules“ with the verb ”demand“ or ”require“ ? The sentence would read:

    ”[...] not in appliance with chess rules, which in the left upper corner of the board demand/require a white square.“

    Thank you! Greetings from Berlin ...

    Welcome to the forum, Arteberlina.

    I'd use 'stipulate'.

    Greetings Arteberlina.

    Are you sure you mean "appliance"? Perhaps this word should be "application" or "compliance".

    As for the actual question, I think both are possible but I would choose "require".

    I didn't spot the 'appliance'.

    "Requires"

    Oops. Disregard this.

    Re: demand vs. require

    @ 5jj and Roman55: I will recheck appliance. I think I must have meant compliance. Stipulate is not what I need, so I will go with require. Thank you both so much!

    oh funny, I think this was a hybrid between accordance and compliance ... I'm not a native. Good thing you saw ...

    If there is a dark space in the upper left hand corner of the board, I would write: "Rotate the board 90 degrees in either direction."
