    'On-send' is this an English word?

    Hi,

    Please help.

    Is 'on-send' an English word. For example 'please on-send once you have made your corrections'.

    It just doesn't sound right to me but am unsure.

    Thanks,

    Wendy

    Thanks.

    Would really like to know though if it is correct or not?!

    Anyone know?

    Wendy, I've never heard it...it sounds very awkward...it is not common usage...and whether it is correct, or not, (which I don't believe it is), I would NEVER use it because it would also sound strange to my fellow native English speakers! 'Send it on' is the commonly used expression.

    I've certainly never heard it either.

    I would use:

    Please send it on...
    Please forward it...

    The word 'forward' received a new lease of life with the arrival of email.

    As did the word 'Send'.

    My personal favorite word on the e-mail list is 'Delete'!

    Never heard of it being used . It does not sound right and I would never use it.

    I'd like to hear from someone from India on this. The land of "preponed" meetings where they "revert back" to you with a response might be the land of "on-send."

    Or they might not.

    I still wish we'd adopt "preponed." Such a useful word.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    If I used this word as a non-native speaker and a non-Indian, would native speakers think that I am from India ?

    Not I, though there might be other clues. I have used 'preponed', though I don't know how much support it has from other Br Eng users. But I'm 'a snapper up of unconsidered trifles', and pick up words wherever I meet useful ones.
