I’ll use it in a sentence:

● Frustrated with his wife’s nagging, David finally acceded to his wife’s request and cleaned the bedraggled garage.*

● After many months of protesting, the store manager acceded to his employees demand for higher wages. 

● Even though Keisha needed the credit card, she would not accede to the bank’s loan agreement.

● Although reluctant, I acceded to my students petition for less homework.

● Will you accede to his request?

● He acceded to the throne in 1770.

*dfoww will share the word: bedraggled sometime in September 2019.

Now it’s your turn, on a sheet of paper or in the comment section below, write a few sentences using the word: accede.

Tip: Use the word during a conversation today. The more you familiarize yourself with this word, by consistently incorporating it in your vocabulary and writing, the easier it will be to remember the word. Figuratively speaking, you’ll own the word.
