    Question Grammar doubt

    Friends,

    What is the difference between "I agree" and "I do agree"?

    thanks

    I'd say that "I agree" means exactly that. "I do agree" suggests extra support for the point and has a greater sense of formality.

    Re: Grammar doubt

    I do agree - Here you have an ''emphatic DO''. You are emphasising that you are agreeing.
    e.g. If somebody doesn't believe you agree with something, then you say ''I DO AGREE!''

    All the best!
