Assent vs Ascent - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This is another set of words that are commonly confused in English. Let's break it down: Assent describes an agreement or an approval. We could say: He nodded his assent and she continued. Ascent, on the other hand, describes the action of rising or climbing up. For example: My legs were tired after I took the ascent to the cabin on the ridge. I?m sure you?ll never confuse the two words again. That?s it for today. See you next time!
