/ˌɒl.təˈkeɪ.ʃən/ (noun)

Altercation meaning

a loud and heated argument or quarrel, dispute, controversy, disagreement, embroilment, squabble, discord, row, difference of opinion


Arguments and altercations are a part of life, but, hopefully, you’re usually able to peacefully come to an agreement or compromise. Sometimes, however, it appears as though there’s no way that you’ll ever be able to reach an agreement, regardless of if you’re arguing with a family member, a friend, or a colleague, so it can be important to know some of the ways to settle an argument or altercation when it feels like you’ll never agree. That way, when it seems like you’re both set in your ways (or even moving farther apart), there’s still a possible path out of the argument and toward some sort of agreement — or, at least, a ceasefire.
