    Word Usage

    Dear Ma'am / Sir,

    Will it be correct if I use the word 'nomination' in the following manner?

    "Please amend nomination of dessert fork to read party fork...."


    Thank you and I await your reply.


    Kind regards,

    Alvira

    No, you seem to want to refer to a label or a description.
    Please change the description of "dessert fork" to read "party fork."

    The word "nomination" is generally used with elections.
