Could you please help me with the sentence below.
1. Is the highlighted passage correct?Please discuss it with them and then, I completely to reconcile it with the boss.
2. Does 'reconcile' mean here the same as 'agree' (I will agree it with the boss)?
3. Does 'completely' mean here the same as 'finally'?
Thanks for your prompt reply, RonBee!))
I used the word 'agree' to mean:Also, "I will agree it with the boss" is not an English sentence.
"3) If people agree on something, or in British English if they agree something, they all decide to accept or do something.
e.g.: The court had given the unions time until September 11 to agree terms with a buyer." (Collins Cobuild Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary. 2008)
Was my usage of this word totally wrong or is it due to the difference between AE and BE?
There might be a difference between AmE and BrE. (Perhaps I was hasty in my comments.) In AmE we would agree with somebody (or something). (As noted, you can also use "agree on".)
("I completely to reconcile it with the boss" still doesn't work.)
