    Default Re: correspondence

    "correspondence" is the action or fact of corresponding, and in the modern world I think e-mails can be regarded as written exchanges of information or opinion.

    The sentence itself might be better expressed

    # Let's keep our correspondence to e-mail

    # Let's correspond by e-mail only

    thank you so much !!!! the funny is who wrote the sentence is an academic. A linguist, thatīs why I thought that it could have another meaning.
