The invitation was for November 10. They moved it backward to November 5 without letting me know first. As I was already committed on that day, I requested a change of date. They complied and moved it forward to November 15.
I would like to know whether the words in bold are correct. Should it be moved it forward for the first part, and moved it backwards for the second part.
If neither, how should I phrase it?
I am also in the camp that says if you move it back, you make it later, and if you move it up, you make it sooner, but that doesn't keep me from agreeing that people do disagree on this and you'll have people confused either way.
They chose an earlier date, they chose a later date - no one would misunderstand that.
Maybe one day the Indian English word "prepone" will enter our global lexicon. Everyone understands "postpone" so let's add "prepone" too.
