Student or Learner
I would like to ask a question in connection with the word 'engage' (here meaning 'to agree to marry sb').
Could you tell me if this sentence is correct?
Peter engaged Julie yesterday.
(I'm aware that I could say Julie got engaged to Peter yesterday., but I would like to emphasize Peter's role in the action.)
Thank you for your help.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
"Peter proposed to Julie yesterday" OR "Peter asked Julie to marry him yesterday".
