    Once confimred

    Once confirmed, will let you know.


    I understand above sentence is correct. Why do we use "confirmed" (3rd form of confirm?) and not confirm?

    Re: Once confimred

    The sentence is not correct.
    Remember : a sentence consists of a subject and a predicate.

    Once
    (something is) confirmed, we will let you know.

    Thanks

    Once the date is confirmed, we will let you know.

    My question was: Why do we use "confirmed" (3rd form of confirm?) and not confirm?

    Because it is in the passive voice. The date is confirmed by someone.
