Someone has to translate this one (thankfully not me!) and he asked for help in translating "recommendation" which is a rather versatile word if you ask me.Is there a recommendation for any voluntary exchange between persons? Plainly not. No recommendations at all attaches to your voluntarily giving me the gun you know will be used by me to shoot my wife. What recommendation attaches to a voluntary sale that will deprive a peasant village of the jobs that were its only means of support until now?
Now my "instinct" is to go with the meaning of "to recommend something to someone" but I am not sure (it's a weird looking text if you ask me).
I can also provide two more one-line-long excerpts where "recommendation" is used (apparently the author just loves using this word) but I am not sure if that is in accordance with the rules.
Do you think the meaning is the same in all instances or is it a case of playing with the word "recommendation" ?
