    Held

    Hi guys,

    We say that, exams are held every year or meeting is held by my senior everyday but what if we want to say it in first person like "He helds meeting everyday". I know we can't use "Held" here. Is it right to say "He calls on meeting everyday". What would be the correct sentence?

    He holds.
    "Held" is the past and doesn't take the S.

    Re: Held

    So we can say "He holds the meeting everyday or he calls on the meting everyday".

    Re: Held

    Only the first one. "He calls on the meeting..." is incorrect.

    Re: Held

    "Every day" means daily.
    "Everyday" means ordinary.

    He holds a staff meeting every day.
