    important work

    Hi,

    I think "He has some important work with me" is either incorrect or doesn't sound better. After a lot of consideration, I have come up with a new sentence as an alternative. Maybe it works, "He has some important work to discuss with me". What do you say?

    Re: important work

    Who created the original "He has some important work with me"? Your revision is a grammatical sentence but whether it was the intended meaning is impossible to say.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: important work

    I created. Is the first sentence correct?

    Your first sentence is possible but I can't think of a particularly natural context for it. Note my correction above - "create" is transitive.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: important work

    Suppose one of my friends wants to meet me. When I ask him over the phone why he wants to meet me. He says that he has some important work with me.

    Re: important work

    That still doesn't work, Your sentence would be better with "work to discuss with me".
