How to request something be saved


Recommended Posts

When putting in a request to have something for later, whether it's a table at a restaurant, a hotel room, or something else, the act is making a reservation. The present-tense version is 'reserve': "I will reserve that table for 4 for tomorrow."

I hear a LOT of people who speak English natively saying "res-er-vate". This is wrong. Perhaps it makes more sense, in a way, but you do not "reservate" anything; you "reserve" it.

I've never really heard anyone use the term before. It could be that they don't know better or that it is a family or region practice done informally :doubtful:. Hopeful, users of this forum have learnt something or are been reminded of the correct word to use when requesting something be saved.
