Origin of concertation
1500–10; < French < Latin concertātiōn- (stem of concertātiō strife, controversy), equivalent to concertāt(us) past participle of concertāre to contend, fight (con- con- + certāre to contend, frequentative of cernere to decide, determine, literally, to sift; cf. certain) + -iōn- -ion; though influenced by French concerter (see concert) and perhaps a new formation
