Condone

Condone

<kond-own>

accept; ignore; excuse;

to allow someone to do something.

I don't condone loud music at night. I like it nice and quiet.

Memory trick:
condone reminds of con.
we are con when we oppose something.

At work:
We condone staying late to work because the quiet is productive.
