#999 COPENHAGEN ACCORD - "WORDS ENDING IN '-ION' "

"WORDS ENDING IN '-ION' "

193 Nations concluded the Copenhagen (Denmark) accord. The Agreement contains a number of platitudes and rhetorical statements.

The object of the convention was to explore the ways and means of reducing emissions of greenhouses gases and global warming.

The Convention itself would have added substantial quantum of emissions to the climate through the overworking of Air-conditioning equipment, refrigerators and throwing away of multi-course lunches and dinners. My blog is essentially a language blog; I shall restrain from commenting.

Words ending in 'tion' are mostly nouns derived from verbs i.e. nothing but actions.

e.g. verb: convene; noun: convention.

The Accord talks of intended actions.

There are approximately 24 nouns ending in 'ion' in the Accord.

Here is a small quiz based on these 24 words. I have truncated the sentences/clauses/phrases for easy reading and comprehension.
