    I can liaise nearer the time

    Hello,

    I don't understand this expression: "I can liaise nearer the time".

    Can you help me please?

    Cheers
    Will

    Re: I can liaise nearer the time

    "Liaise" as a verb is the height of jargon, in my opinion.

    And nearer the time to what?

    I'm not surprised you couldn't understand it.

    I can meet with you at a time closer to [whatever is happening].
    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.

    It could mean to act as a liaison with some un-named 3rd party.
