    Finalize

    Hi


    Can we say these sentences:

    1. Can we finalize a person for an event or competition?

    OR

    Do we only finalize issue?

    2. Can we say: I have to finalize somebody for the position of trainer by thursday.

    Regards
    Pallavi

    Finalize is a neologism in English and, in my opinion, is best not used.
    You canīt finalize a person (unless you kill him;) Iīve heard it used most frequently as it relates to a topic under discussion.
