    "to convey"

    hi,

    i have noticed that "to convey" is very used on this forum.

    i am not sure but, it sounds a little bit formal to me.

    what is the best verb or phrasal verb that "conveys" the same idea?

    "to transmit"?

    "to express"?

    thanks

    Re: "to convey"

    'Convey' is a fairly standard usage when discussing meaning; it doesn't strike me as formal. However, of your suggestions, you could use 'express', but I would not use 'transmit'.
