    Re: difference of opinion

    Hi amigo,
    you remind of the famous amigos4 of this website.
    I think the phrase is "difference of opinion".
    Ex. : "You may be right about the world economic situation, but I have a difference of opinion in the matter, there would be good days again."
    2) "Sir, I beg your pardon, but I have a different opinion in the matter."

    Though depending on the situation, difference in opinion may be used :

    ex. 1) The difference in opinion on the issue led to voting in the parliament.

    P.S. : I am not a teacher of English. Just someone who loves the language.

    Re: difference of opinion

    I’m not a teacher.

    Hi amigos,

    I know the notorious collocations as differing viepoints, divergent views, differing opinions and conflicting opinions.

    I know also the term “reservation” = a dissenting opinion in the law sphere, as in:

    I have / make / express a reservation (about)…..

    There is a very helpful link concerning the expression “difference of opinion”
