    awake and agree

    Hi guys.

    Please check.

    1"He is awake or he was awake" but "He is awaken by me"?

    2 "I agree", "I dis agree", "Are we agreed", "I am agreed"?

    Re: awake and agree

    He is awakened by me every morning.
    He was awakened by me this morning.

    I agree.
    I disagree.
    We are in agreement.
    We agree.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: awake and agree

    OK, the word is awakened not awaken. Can we say "He is agreed or I am agree or I agree".

    Yes it is. I listed that in my first post and missed it in his last post.

    Re: awake and agree

    But in this link I read "We are agreed, people are agreed", so what is problem with "He is agreed"?. Please check this one "We have to get each and every person agreed on this matter".

    Re: awake and agree

    'We' and 'people' refer to more than one person, but 'he' is only one person.

    Not a teacher.

    Re: awake and agree

    OK, "Agreed" cannot be used with is or for singular person. So what can we day "He agrees" or "He was agree".
