Here's a situation:
We have a list of companies that we want to talk to. So we approached them. And some of these companies have gotten back to us.
This act of getting back to us:
- Are they approaching us? (would this be correct?)
- Are they getting back to us? (Obviously)
- Are they [fancy word] to us?
This [fancy word] is what I am looking for. And not something like respond. Any suggestions?
