Acquirement is used in opposition to a natural gift or talent. For example eloquence, and skill in music and painting are acquirements whereas 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.
