Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

Hello,
I'm new here. I'm Ayu from Indonesia.
I've been wondering about the difference between the word affiliation and alliance. I'm so confused in using both in conversation. I really hope you guys can help.
Thank you, have a nice day,
Ayu

    I have, but idk if my understanding is quite correct. So, when some organizations are get together in a joint-project, is it affiliation? They're allied to get in an affiliation?? Is it correct to say it that way?

    Two organisations entering into a project together is a joint-venture.

    So, you could say, "They are working together on a joint-venture".

    If they routinely work together you could say they are affiliated. This is often used to describe a commercial link between companies and universities, or hospitals.

    Hi Lynne, thanks for your explanation :)) it's really helpful. if there are more than two org are working on together, do you still call it as joint-venture?
    Btw Lynne, I saw your thread on the new members and I'd like to comment too since I'm new here, but don't know how..
