"Which Word: helps you understand which word to use.  Because English has so many words that to new learns seem the same, English can be very confusing.  To learn more:

Ever wonder which word you should use?  Even American's often are confused about the differences between words. What is the difference between affect and effect?  Incentive or commission?  Reservation or appointment? 

Our Which Word program breaks it down for you.  Here is an example of how we do it:

When Negotiating, which word to use? Incentive or Concession?

What is the difference?

Both words are commonly used in negotiations and advertising. They both involve motivating an action or encouraging an action to occur, they both “sweeten the deal” for the recipient.   It is very common to see the two words incorrectly used interchangeably.   Indeed, because of the frequency of this, the meanings have blurred to the point that the general population often perceives both words as meaning the same thing: “getting something extra from the other person or party in a transaction”.

However, there is a significant difference in the actual meanings. In its most simple form, this difference is as follows:

  • an incentive is “offered willingly”

  • a concession is “yielded to ” or “giving in to”, often reluctantly

    In a purchase and sale situation, another way of viewing this as follows:

  • an incentive is offered by the seller to entice the buyer to purchase

  • a concession is demanded by the buyer and the seller reluctantly agrees to this demand in order to complete the sale

    Since American often use the words interchangeably does it really make a difference which you use? Perhaps not, but be aware of the possible subliminal impact of the wording. If you are the seller and want to lure a buyer, use the word incentive. It is a positive word that implies a reward for action, whereas concession is derived from the word “concede” meaning reluctantly yielding, or in plain English…you lose.
