  -> Thnx!

neutral  Sandra& Kenneth: 1. "commend" e total irelevant. Intre "commend" si "comandament" nu e absolut nici o legatura. Daca crezi ca e o traducere potrivita... 2. commission e altceva.

"sedinte operative zilnice numite “comandamente” ale operatorilor portuari"

Expresia de mai sus ofera o definitie gresita a cuvantului "comandament".
Comandamentul este un organ de conducere militar (sau civil) sau cladirea in care isi desfasoara activitatea acest organ (command, quarter) de ex. United States Central Command.

Folosirea cuvantului comandament in sensul de "sedinta operativa" este un malapropism.

Dar... ceea ce este malapropism astazi... poate deveni utilizare acceptata in viitor.

COMANDAMÉNT, comandamente, #s. n.# 1. Organ de conducere a unei (mari) unități sau a unei instituții militare. ♢ Comandament suprem = cel mai înalt organ de conducere a armatei sau unui stat sau unui grup de state în timp de război. ♦ Loc unde este instalat acest organ. 2. #Fig.# Precept, poruncă, regulă, normă. 3. (#Jur.#) Act prin care începe executarea silită imobiliară a unui debitor. – Din #fr.# commandement.

Intr-adevar, am tradus cuvantul Comandament = Command.

pluralul este, intr-adevar "commandments"... dar, de vreme ce Command nu se foloseste niciodata la plural... mi se pare futil sa ofer aceasta aceasta forma flexionara.

Suntem traducători, ori nu mai suntem?!

neutral  Sandra& Kenneth: Sedinte denumite "commands"??? Nu e vorba de simple sedinte operative, ci de "sedinte operative de luarea de decizii cum ar fi "de stat major". Termenul a mai fost discutat. Nu cred ca e cazul sa declaram malapropisme...
