    meaning of acknowledged

    Constructive comments and suggestions, for qualitative improvement of the book, would be received and acknowledged, with a deep sense of gratitude, from learned teachers and others.

    What is the meaning of acknowledged here?

    Could anyone explain it?

    Hi,
    It means take into consideration, consider, I think.

    The person(s) receiving the comments will thank the person(s) making them.

    The best meaning I can find for 'acknowledge' in this case is ' to let someone know that you have seen them' or 'to accept that something is true or exists'.....preferably the second if no written answer is sent.

    Those are typical meanings for acknowledging. Also, in the case of a book, it's likely to refer to the 'Acknowledgments page' - where the author says 'Thanks are also due to the following, who read an early draft of this book...'.

    I think this is a misconstructed sentence requesting learned readers to send in their comments for improvements to the book and all comments will be acknowledged (thanked) by the writers of the book.
