Yeah, I’ll revert to you soonest.
Quite aside from the wearisomely inaccurate use of the word ‘revert’, it seems that the entire corporate world is falling for a strange new use of the word ‘soonest’.
All of a sudden, it means “as soon as I can” whereas previously, assuming soonest was ever a word, it must have meant something like “the most soon”.
Hmm. Soonest isn’t a thing because It was never really a word in the first place. Not one you’d ever use anyway.
And now it’s a word that doesn’t even make sense. Which is, I suppose, some kind of progress.
