By agreement, all parties met at Indian Spring to consider a second contract in early February 1825. The results of my experience are in line with those of Michelson and with the law of general relativity. Central English, borrowed from the Anglo-French agreement, approval, of the agreement “accept, accept” – -ment Do not define terms that are generally understood. Otherwise, you have to define every word in the agreement! “Since then, the CIA has paid out more than $1 million under the agreement,” the report says. Their definitions should be very clear and allow parties and readers to quickly understand what a defined word means without having to constantly revisit the part of the definition. Define a term only if you use it in the agreement. I have seen agreements with many definitions that are not used anywhere in the body of an agreement. It is best to include all definitions in one place. Otherwise, certain terms may be defined in the description of the parties, some in the recitals, some in the definition section, some in the corresponding clauses, some in the annexes, etc. A reader will therefore always be surprised or shocked if he finds either definition while he goes through the agreement, and he will be at sea to find the corresponding definition.
Ronald Reagan approved the agreement and the USTR reviewed Korean practices until the end of his term. After much discussion, there has still been no agreement on what to do next. This rule of good practice is well established and prevents greater clarity as to how defined concepts and definitions work. For example, if the defined term is used recklessly in the agreement, it disturbs the reader and rejects exactly the purpose for which the term was defined. The parties can only be defined by name (or abbreviations) if they wear multiple hats in an agreement, as in the case of the example above. Similarly, definitions tend to make it simpler and more concise to interpret and read an agreement and to reduce ambiguities. A defined term, used at any point in the agreement, refers to the person or entity defined or process. Define the terms in an important agreement, and the other agreement may have an explanation that the defined terms have the same meaning as in the great agreement mentioned above. Now, wherever in the agreement, you want to fire the board of XYZ India Private Limited, just write “Board.” Do not write “Board of Directors,” “Board of Directors of the Company” or “Board of Directors of XYZ India Private Limited.” The use of multiple terms for the same person, unit or term is confusing and irritated. In November 2014, this agreement was extended for four months, with some additional restrictions for Iran. The definitions lead to a consistency of the frames of reference throughout the agreement. The reader is sure of the meaning of a defined term as soon as he understands it.
