    Reclamation 'on' or 'in'...

    Hello!

    Would you be so kind as to tell me what is the right preposition for this sentence:
    Reclamation 'on' or 'in' the latest goods... (I mean that reclamation is according to the latest goods...)

    Thank you.

    Re: Reclamation 'on' or 'in'...

    I'm afraid neither one makes sense to me. What do you mean by "reclamation"?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Reclamation = claim (a letter of complaint).

    Please provide a full sentence showing what you want to say.

    Re: Reclamation 'on' or 'in'...

    I need to claim on unnecessary goods. The topic of my email letter is "Reclamation 'on' or 'in' the latest goods".

    I am not a teacher
    I think reclamation "of" would work better here.

    It's still not clear what you want.

    Are you asking for the money you paid for the goods to be refunded?
    Are you making a complaint about the quality of the goods?
    Are you making a claim for compensation for some loss you have suffered as a result of using the goods?

    Re: Reclamation 'on' or 'in'...

    Denismurs, thank you! How do you think wheather the English preposition 'for' corresponds to the Russian preposition 'по' (рекламация по последним товарам) here?

    P.S.: Administrators, do not delete my post, please. I just need advise of someone who speaks Russian.

    Re: Reclamation 'on' or 'in'...

    Piscean, I want to say that one company sent me unnecessary goods (I did not order them), but I must pay for them. That is why I need to write a reclamation (a letter of complaint) 'on' or 'in' (or should I use another preposition?) these goods...
    Let me know if you need some additional information.
