  1. I want to know if the sentence "collect me from the airport" is correct.


    "Please, collect me from the airport." is nicer. or "I would like you to collect me from the airport." is even more polite.

    "Collect me from the airport." Is grammatically correct, but it is an order from a superior to a subordinate. And in my opinion even superiors should show humility.

  3. How much is a pound worth in America?
    The value of different currencies changes daily. It is called the exchange rate or rate of exchange, the rate at which the money of one country can be changed for the money of another country. The system by which the type of money used in one country is exchanged for another country's money is called the foreign exchange. There are generally two rates of exchange, one for tourists and the other for businesses.

    In the US the currency is the USD or US dollar ($) in the UK the currency is the GBP pound or pound sterling (£ ). The best way to find out the current exchange rate is to use one of the many services on the Internet, xe.com Universal Currency Converter is just one of these.

Please, help me How can I tell the customer this, in a good way with good manners, and easy for my bad English. Thanks.
    I think I understand what you mean. I wouldn't go into too much explanation, keep it nice and simple. Take the goods from the customer and say:-

    "If you would like to come with me, you can pay at the front desk."
    or
    "I'm afraid we'll have to take these to the front desk, I'll carry them for you."

    This way you have apologised for any inconvenience (I'm afraid) and offered to help the customer.

    It shouldn't happen but, if the customer insists on taking the goods anyway just say "I'm sorry it's the shop's policy not to let goods out of the department unaccompanied."

    PS - I would suggest the shop provides cover for the cashier's break or a second back-up till!

    Please, let me know the correct answer. What does 'Minutes' in MoM i.e. Minutes of Meeting stand for?
    The minutes of a meeting are a written record of the proceedings of a meeting.

    However, the word shouldn't be confused with the notion of time.

    According to my understanding of the etymology of this word it came from the Latin minuta scriptura which meant "rough notes".

  8. What does the word Esquire mean?
    The word "Esquire" is a fall back to the days of social class.

    It was originally the feudal rank below knight, but the sense broadened in the 16 century to be a general title of courtesy or respect for the educated classes.

    Even later it became used in association with lawyers (probably trying to give their profession a veneer of respectability) .

    Nowadays you would more likely see it in its abbreviated form 'Esq.'. Here it is used as an honorific, especially after the name of an attorney or a consular officer: Jane Doe, Esq.; John Doe, Esq.

Thank you for this valuable service. P.T. Thomas
    1. He works for ABC. = He is paid by them. 2. He works with ABC. = He isn't paid by them but works in cooperation with them. 3. He works at ABC. = He is paid by them, or someone else pays him to work there. 4. You wouldn't say this.

  10. While receiving or taking leave of visitors 'nice to meet you / nice meeting you' and variants thereof are often used. which of them are correct? Are there better sayings for the same situation?
    I always teach the following:- At the first meeting when you recieve visitors: "Nice to meet you." At the first meeting when you take your leave: "Nice to have met you." or "It was nice to meet you." or "It was nice meeting you." At subsequent meetings:- When you receive visitors: "Nice to see you again." When you take your leave: "Bye." or "It was nice to see you again." or "It was nice seeing you again."

  11. At end of an informal meeting with friends/colleagues, I want to take leave of them. Which is the best saying for such situation - I'll (proceed/push off/take off). Is there a still better saying ?
    To be informal, but not impolite you could say:- "I'll be off then." Proceed is the wrong word. "Push off" has a slightly negative connotation and I would never use "take off" in this context.

    Generally a "managing partner" is the equivalent of a CEO or Managing Director within organisations which are run as partnerships, for example lawyers. The "managing partner" is the partner who has assumed managerial control, he or she is typically the person who has invested the most, but this is not always the case.

    You wouldn't use the word control. In fact be careful of using this word when talking about people. Sometimes a simple, "Thanks for that, I really appreciate it", is much more effective.

  24. Hi How to I phrase the following without sounding too direct or harsh : "Your account currently does not qualify for any free gifts". "Your account history shows that you only deposit in order to claim a free money bonus. There is no longer a fair business relationship in place as you never risk any of your own money. So you will not be receiving any free gifts". Regards Jolene
    To make things sound less harsh, we use softeners. In your case I would say something like:- "I'm afraid your account does not qualify for any free gifts at the moment." Then I would add how (if possible) they could claim a free gift. For example:- "In order to qualify you would have to ...." etc. I hope this helps.

  25. This may sound a bit hoity-toity: I correspond often with physicians-it's a part of my job, and at times I need to address them in the plural, e.g., "Drs Pfaff, al-Hamoudy and Beemsma, who co-authored a paper on Hydatid Cysts...". Every time I write it in an email, however I spell it, it's considered "wrong". Should it be capitalized? Does it require a period? What's the scoop?
    If you're citing the work of these doctors, then Drs Pfaff etc. would be fine. In the US you would probably use a period after Drs. As for spell-checkers; they're not infallible. That said, if I was writing a letter I would use the honorific for each person. For example:- Dear Doctor Pfaff, Doctor al-Hamoudy and Doctor Beemsma.

  26. Is there a difference between BOOKING and RESERVATION in both airline and hotel business?!
    Practically interchangeable, but some people in the UK tend to use the word reservation for rooms and tables in restaurants. For example:- Good evening I have a reservation for a double room, and I'd like to reserve a table for dinner. But we use booking for transport and reservation for individual seats. For example:- I booked a return ticket to Edinburgh and I have a seat reservation in business class.

  35. I was taught that when making enclosures or attachments one should write, "Attached you will please find..." My supervisor says this is grammatically incorrect. I believe it's stilted and archaic, but not incorrect.
    I'm not sure who taught you to write this, were they from Shakespearean times? You would usually say "Please find attached". Even if you wanted to be stilted, you would say "Attached please find." At a push you could say, "Attached you will find", but IMHO the "you will" makes it sound far too much like an order. "Attached you will please find", is almost curt.

    I would say "Please find attached the minutes of the XYZ meeting held on Thursday, dd.mm.yyy." I wouldn't add "for your perusal". In internal correspondence brevity is king. For your boss I would send a separate email or memo with Dear Mr / Mrs ..., but for your colleagues a CC mail / memo with Dear all, is fine.

Kindly advise me if such a phrase is correct or not?
    It is acceptable to use this form (personally I never say "hear back from" as it's unwieldy), and I don't know whether it's typical for Australia. In a business letter I would write: I look forward to your reply. Here "to" is a preposition. For example:- "I am looking forward to seeing my sister next month."

Thank you!! ------------------------------------ I'm having issues wording these couple sentences for my resume cover letter. It doesn't sound very professional the way I wrote it. How would you write this? Thank you!! ------------------------- "Having been recognized in writing multiple times by management personnel as an employee who is willing to go above and beyond expectations, the following three items are what I can offer your organization" .........
    With the proviso that I'm not a resume writer, I would probably shorten it a bit:- I have often received recognition as someone who is willing to go above and beyond expectations. I feel I will be able to offer your organisation the following skills in particular... (You could mention management, but I think it's self explanatory). Good luck with your application.

  47. please let me know that is this sentence is correct or not? sentence is- Showroom will remain closed on 2nd oct 2013.
    With a couple of changes, you could write it on a sign, but if you were putting it in a report or letter, or telling someone, you would say:- The showroom will be closed on 2nd Oct 2013. You would only use "remain closed" if the showroom is already closed.

  48. Otherwise than at the beginning of the sentence or as part of the term "Board of Directors," in what circumstances should the term "director" (referencing a member of the Board of Directors of a corporation) be initial capitalized? Unlike the titles of offices, such as President, I have seen "director" and "Director" inconsistently in minutes of meetings of the Board of Directors.
    I don't capitalise "director" at all, but it tends to be a matter of style, rather than fixed rules. For example: David is a director of the LEN. As for board of directors. I wouldn't capitalise it for any old BOD, but for a specific one I would. For example: David is on the LEN Board of Directors.
