Reaffirm


The concept of reaffirmation is used in language to express that something that was affirmed over time reaffirms itself, that is, it affirms itself again, either because it was not clear at the time or to give more strength to what was he said, returning him to affirm. In general, the reaffirmation of the sayings or comments has the mission of ratifying or revalidating them in a given circumstance and before a public that demands it.

It could be said that reaffirmation is a later step, although not essential, of an affirmation. When a person says something, what he does is express it firmly, providing security or certainty to his speech. This can happen if the manager of a soccer team goes to the press and says that he will stay with the club despite poor results.

Normally when a person says something about a question it is sufficient and accepted because the affirmation of something almost always implies the existence of certainty and security about what is affirmed, except that there is some kind of reparation or contradiction expressed by another person or by a fact, in relation to what is stated, and then can be claimed by the person who said something that he has to reaffirm to clarify doubts or to clarify a position, for example.

The term reaffirmation also appears in the context of aesthetics, since the skin goes through a natural process known as flaccidity, which with the passage of time and drastic changes in weight generates a significant loss of tension, which is very unfavorable for the image of the person. The parts of the body in which it is most frequently observed are the neck and arms.

An example of this term; The Chancellor will travel to Paris tomorrow to reaffirm the validity of the Franco-German axis. The Christian Democrat Angela Merkel, after being sworn in today as Chancellor of Germany, will inaugurate the lawsuit with a trip to Paris. (The Vanguard, 11/22/2005).
