What may be the meaning of the word acceptation for general English usage?
The Merriam-Webster lists primary definition as "1: acceptance; especially : favorable reception or approval" and follows on with "2: a generally accepted meaning of a word or understanding of a concept"
Oxforddictionaries online lists only one definition: "noun a particular sense or the generally recognized meaning (common acceptation) of a word or phrase."
The OAADonline too records just one entry: "(linguistics) the meaning that a word or expression is generally accepted as having".
Would it be acceptable to use the word acceptation in the sense of acceptance, as in: "acceptation/rejection of a paper submitted to a conference"?
