 ac·quire·ment /əˈkwaɪrmənt/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Ac·quire·ment n. The act of acquiring, or that which is acquired; attainment. “Rules for the acquirement of a taste.”
    His acquirements by industry were . . . enriched and enlarged by many excellent endowments of nature.   --Hayward.
 Syn: -- Acquisition, Acquirement.
 Usage: Acquirement is used in opposition to a natural gift or talent; as, eloquence, and skill in music and painting, are acquirements; genius is the gift or endowment of nature. It denotes especially personal attainments, in opposition to material or external things gained, which are more usually called acquisitions; but this distinction is not always observed.

      n : an ability that has been acquired by training [syn: skill,
           accomplishment, acquisition, attainment]
