Margarita wants to know: “Can something really get ‘re-gotten?’ Help!”
YANGON, June 11 (Xinhua) — Myanmar stands an opportunity to re-get the Global Fund aid to fight HIV, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria after it was stopped nearly two years ago, a local media quoted the remarks of United Nations health officials as saying Monday.
Okay, here’s the deal: no, you cannot reget something. This sentence is a mess. A better way to say it might be, for example, “Aid to Myanmar will be renewed . . .” or “Myanmar will begin to receive aid again after it was stopped nearly two years ago . . .” or “For the first time in two years, Myanmar will receive aid.”
MRP says, I regret but you cannot reget.
