No, acquaintance usually refers to a person you know (are acquainted with). It may also be used in phrases like "I am pleased to make your acquaintance." (See this thread for a few examples of how it is used.)In the dictionary, 'to aqcuaint' means 'to make familiar' or 'to cause to come to know personally'. Can I use the noun 'acquaintance' for the process when someone acquaint someone else? For example:
It was the aqcuaintance between him and his new secretary.
