This answer was rated:

is the word 'anent' an English legal term?
-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Thank you.
Anent is not an English legal term but it is an old term meaning "concerning" or "about".
You may use the more common words instead of the word anent.
May I help further?

An English performer refuses to play my 'Five Odes anent Li Po' for recorder and piano because he considers 'anent' to be some kind of dialect maybe because I live in Scotland. I did not pick it up here, and I am not Scottish. I seem to have always known it.

I am afraid you canot force the English performer to play your "Five Odes anent Li Po", if they do not wish to.
