Sir, is it correct to use the following sentence, “We will keep you updated once we receive an update from the team.”? Minhas Garg
There is nothing wrong with the sentence as it makes a sensible communication. But why repeat a word twice when we have so many options to use related synonyms. Try these options:
We will keep you informed once we receive an update from the team.
We will keep you updated once we get any notification from the team.
Sir, between these two words ‘disinterested’ and ‘uninterested’, which one is correct?
Malini Both the words are correct. There is a difference between these two words.
To be disinterested is to be without selfish motives or interest, therefore objective or impartial. But it is often used to mean uninterested, bore, indifferent or apathetic. During a trial a judge should be a disinterested but not an uninterested listener.
When do we get something and when do we receive anything?
Hariharan Get and receive both mean to get something from a person or source. However, in this sense, receive is more formal than get. Things we can get are as follows:
Did you get/receive an answer to your mail?
He got/received the permission to organize the conference.
I got the opportunity to become the manager in my company
When do we use the word bring in sentences?
Akhila Bring means to go to a place with someone or something.
Please bring the umbrella. We use bring to introduce and to cause something to happen.
To bring new changes, we need to agree as a team.
Bring can also serve as an idiom and phrasal verb.
