    concerning/as regards

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-I do not know what awaits me concerning a letter I sent to my boss.
    2-I do not know what awaits me as regards a letter I sent to my boss.

    3-I do not know what to expect concerning a letter I sent to my boss.

    4-I do not know what to expect as regards a letter I sent to my boss.

    5-I do not know what will happen concerning a letter I sent to my boss.

    6-I do not know what will happen as regards a letter I sent to my boss.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.


    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    (Not a Teacher)

    Allow me to suggest "in regards to" instead of "as regards". Both "in regards to" and "concerning" work in these sentences.

    Re: concerning/as regards

    How about "regarding"?

    Yes — 'regarding' works well, too, Matthew.

    Re: concerning/as regards

    Is it too formal to use "with reference to" or "in connection with" in these contexts?
