GYG Day 65. Monday Mail Mastery. SLN 6 Phrasal verbs for your mails.

Phrasal verbs will come in very handy in less formal mail when you know the recipient well. Here are two I prepared earlier! The phrasal verbs are in bold and underlined and their meaning in (brackets).

Subject. Product launch

Hi Marie

Gerry (the CEO of Mystuff.com ) just called me to tell me to bring forward the launch (= do earlier than planned). I’ll get on with (= continue) sorting out (= solve a problem/crisis) the logistics headache.

Can you sort out (= plan, organise) the filming arrangements? Is the beginning of next week doable?

Keep me posted.

Cheers

Dave

Subject: Takeover. Urgent

Hi Gayle

Sorry, you got lumbered with dealing with (= manage, address) this delicate matter. Their lawyers will draw up (= produce, write, draft (a document)) a draft contract and get it to you a.s.a.p. (= send, make arrive).

It’s the top priority so, please get onto it right away (= do sth about it) and send on (= forward, inform) your comments to me. Don’t forget to copy Fred in on your mail as well. (= send a copy of an email to a third party)

Thanx, a million.

Dave.
