Is it pretentious to use 'as per'?
Even in formal English writing?
"As per your request on 12.9.2012, your booking has been cancelled."
I read online that "as per" is perceived as pretentious but I can't think of any alternatives (for formal style).
as per your request vs. per your request > both increasingly avoided in favor of Plain English
(but the links for explanation inlcuded in the above page don't work, so I would like to ask the question here.)
As you requested.
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.
