    Default to deem or reckon

    hi guys,

    how do you think this sentence should be ?

    "We deem such an issue of major interest in metrological science"

    or

    "We deem such an issue to be of major interest in metrological science"

    or suggest me another verb instead of deem ... possibly "reckon".... which one is more formal?

    thanks

    Pat

    Hi.

    "We deem such an issue to be of major interest TO metrological science"

    Reckon, to answer your question would be considered informal in a case such as this. Deem is a great word to use.
