    relay (something) to somene


    relay something to somebody: He quickly relayed this news to the other members of staff.

    Should I alwasy use the object before 'to'? I mean, can't I construct a dialogue like:

    A: Have you not received my message?
    B: No but they should have relayed to me.

    Is it OK or should I say, '...relaid me.'?

    Re: relay (something) to somene

    You would need to say "No. They should have relayed it to me".

    Note that "relaid" has a completely different meaning from "relayed".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
