    accommodation

    Hi there,
    I would say "He has agreed to provide with accommodation or he will provide accommodation to me"
    Whenever I talk about accommodation, I use "provide" with it. But can you think of other words which can be preceded by "accommodation"?
    Thanks.

    I found examples of 'offer accommodation' on http://fraze.it/n_search.jsp?q=%22of...2&l=0&sugg=off

    Re: accommodation

    "accommodation" is mostly used in UK. What about in USA? Which instead of accommodation is used in USA?

    Re: accommodation

    The sentences are not correct:

    He has agreed to provide with accommodation.
    He will provide
    me accommodation to me.

    Housing is different from accomodation. Housing is accomodation in the long term.

    I would add 'with' after 'me', but I am not a teacher.

    This sentence would almost surely be understood in AmE to be talking about something other than lodging.

    I thought of that, but I'm assuming the context is clear.
    Yes "accommodate" does have another important meaning.

    Re: accommodation

    Do you mean something like 'A guy accommodates a girl and they have a relationship'?
