i have no objection

Have vs. Take

Google Books indicates usage of 'take' though 'have' is perhaps more common, particularly in a legal setting: I have no objections, Your Honour.

Bạn đang xem: i have no objection

Is there any difference between, for example:

  1. I have no objection to lớn your proposal
  2. I take no objection to lớn your proposal

or are they interchangeable?

Is it that 'take' can only be used in the singular? 'I take no objections, Your Honour' sounds ghastly.

Your confusion here is due to lớn counting. "To take objection" is a verb phrase, and is synonymous with "to object"; it does not count a number of objections.

However, if you want to lớn count a number of objections (and "no", "none" and "zero" are all counting) then you use the verb "to have".

Hence it is:

I take objection to lớn that!

On a comparative view the difference between the two would be that "I take no objection to lớn your proposal" indicates that you may have an objection but you are choosing not to lớn state it. Whereas, "I have no objection to lớn your proposal" indicates that you have no objection whatsoever. However, this understanding of the phrases only occurs if you compare the two.

Another view is "I take no objection to lớn your proposal" may indicate a slightly more personal view of the proposal. This is because the term "taking objection" something is generally used when someone personally takes offence or personally objects to lớn something. Whereas "I have no objection to lớn your proposal" is slightly less personal.
