    Re: I am consent

    They are all wrong. 'Consent' is a noun.

    It's like saying 'I am agreement'.

    Re: I am consent

    'Consent' is also a verb, but the bare form cannot follow parts of BE.

    Did you mean content?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    No. I meant "consent" only.

    Re: I am consent

    In that case, your sentences make no sense. As you've been told, "consent" is a verb and a noun. You have used it as if it is an adjective. What are you trying to say?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I am consent

    Consent means agreement, right?

    "He/I wasn't consented over this matter".

    "I have given my consent".

    "We are consented over this matter".

    How about these ones?

    I consent.
    I have given my consent.

    We are in agreeement on this matter.

    If you are trying out a new word tufguy, fraze.it will give you lots of sentences containing your chosen word. This will give you an idea of how it is used.

    "He/I wasn't consented over this matter". That doesn't make sense. You can't BE consented. Possibilities:

    - I didn't consent to this.
    - I wasn't consulted over this.


    "I have given my consent". Very good. It's a noun here.

    "We are consented over this matter". No. Possibilities:

    - We consent to this.
    - We have consented to this.
    - We are consenting to this.


    How about these ones?
    Keep at it!
