"mentioned"

Posted by Olwen   22 Feb 2014 7 57 pm

Hi Alex,

Another query here, please.

Does the word "mentioned" in the sentence below sound a bit "old-fashioned" in today's English? Any other comments, please.

"As mentioned in my email of xxxx, we will bear the hotel expenses to be incurred by Mr. X during the period March 3 - 7, 2014."

Thanks again,
Olwen

Hi

'As I mentioned' or 'As I said'. 'Mentioned' is not old-fashioned, but if you mentioned something, you should make it clear.

...the hotel expenses to be incurred by Mr. X ...
