    Ones

    Could I use the word: "ones" instead of repeating the word: "negotiations"?


    Mr. X held pointless negotiations whereas Mr. Y has the ability to hold useful ones.

    Re: Ones

    According to the dictionaries negotiations is a correct plural form of negotiation. So, to my mind, it's quite possible to use "ones" instead of a plural form. But I'd better try to change or rearrange the sentence to avoid using "ones" (especially in documents).

    This sentence is correct.
