Student or Learner
I have a question as follows and it is really confusing whether or not it is correct, so please get it corrected if wrong, or confirm me it is correct.
I come up with an expression of '' A deposit-based leasee'' who I wanted to mean is a person who leases something on a long-time basis.
In this case, what I wonder is if it is fine with using ''----based'' along with Somebody not something since ''----based'' is widely seen to be used with Something like ''fact-based research''
one more thing.. what about ''peer-based review''? is it correct or wrong?
I would appreciate it if you would confirm me if ''a deposit-based lease'' and ''peer-based review'' are correct or wrong.
thanks in advance
Merry07, I am unsure whether you are talking about someone 'who borrows/leases from' or 'who loans/leases to'. If 'from':
'long-term borrower'/'long-term lessee'
and if 'to':
'long-term lender'/'long-term lessor'
'borrower'/'lender' are more commonly used in most contexts; 'lessee'/'lessor' are often used to talk about real assets, eg you might lease a property or an airplance.
In some cases, other terms are more commonly used, eg the lessee of a house is a 'tenant' though we might see 'lessee' in the relevant legal documents.
It's in use, but Wiktionary, one of the few online dictionaries that has it, gives it as non-standard. Maybe it's starting to gain popularity, though I haven't heard it in BrE.
