How do you use averse in a sentence?
I am averse to freedom of the press if it damages or threatens our national security.
The word you probably want is "averse." It means strongly disinclined. In this case, it is a negative of the negative, so that "I am not averse to your wishes" means that the speaker has no opposition to a request, i.e is amenable to it. --- The meaning of the word adverse is similarly negative, meaning an unwanted or non-beneficial result, as in "the patient had an adverse reaction to his medication."
