"to revert"

Doesn't mean what lawyers think it means. It means to return to an earlier state of being.  Don't use it to mean "get back to you" or "reply to", it makes you look stupid. 

 

 

Interesting. I’ll give this some thought and revert.

You'll revert to being interesting? Cannot wait. 

“When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

I wonder if the battle has been lost on this one. It may not revert to its normal meaning given that lawyers seem to sufficiently desire a more fancy way of saying "get back to you".

the english dictionary is a record of usage not of definition, unlike say the french and other countries which legislate to control meaning of their languages

so at a simplified level words in english really just mean whatever most people understand them to mean when used
