    committee

    Hello, it's been a long time...

    Is it true that the noun committee behaves similar to the nouns like parliament, court, prison, hospital etc. when combined with certain verbs in certain context f.i.:

    The nominations are hold in committee and there is only a slight chance to revert this situation to our benefit.

    Can you give me more examples?
    Do you know any other nouns which behave like described above?

    Best regards,
    Ewelina

    Re: committee

    Do you mean things like 'in camera' for closed sessions of courts, etc?

    Like:

    He was sent to prison, sentenced to 25 to life
    or
    This man has abused verbally, I will see him in court.

    All the best,
