Are these sentences OK? Did I use "present perfect" right?
I have been unable to get hold of the principal's assistant. I will call her again today and hopefully I will get hold of her.
I'd say "ahold."
Really? "Ahold" as one word. In BrE, "to get hold of someone" is fine so the original is OK. We might use "to get a hold of someone" but it would definitely be two words.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
"Hold" would be fine, but it seems stilted to me without the "a."
I would not say "ahold".
