I get exasperated when I see the word revert used to replace the word "reply".

Misusing the Word ‘Revert’ Many executives have used the word ‘Revert’ to mean ‘Reply’ in their correspondences. But this is a mistake. To Revert or Reply Have you received a letter or an email with “Please revert by this week”? Do you know that ‘revert’ does not mean ‘reply’? To revert is to ‘return to a previous state’. Remember This In your next email, be mindful not to use ‘Revert’ when you mean to say ‘Reply.’ It is better to ask for a response by saying, “Please reply by the end of the day.” Source: Edited from the [email protected] e-newsletter by 938LIVE.
