comment Which dialects of English consider “would” to be a polite form of “will”?
@JonHanna Hypercorrection sounds like a likely explanation.

comment Concatenate vs. Catenate
Side note: Okasaki, in his famous Purely functional data structures book, consistently uses "catenate", but it's indeed one of the rare examples I have ever come by.

comment A word for “someone you meet with”
Sure; I was curious whether there was a single word for this though. The other answers are fine.

Regarding "visitor", doesn't that suggest that they are coming? If I have a meeting with my lawyer at 2PM, I can't really call them my "visitor", right?

That's nice, I didn't know meeting could be used in the same way as appointment.

In other words: I'm not going to reject a suggestion because I can't use it to name a variable at all; it's the fact that I was trying to name a variable that made me realize I didn't know a proper word.

The naming was really more of a pretext than the real reason and that's why I didn't mention it in the question. I've upvoted the answer with "attendee" because it sounds like a nice fit for my question; other suggestions that I have "rejected" I did mostly because they didn't fit in the "general meeting" question.

@Mari-LouA: You might also just meet them for dinner, and everyone pays for themselves. You don't need to be paying for them, and that's what guest seems to suggest to me.

Isn't conferee specific to conferences? Pretty word though

Attendee sounds nice indeed, although it does suggest a large meeting.

Doesn't that suggest that the guest is coming to your office/place? If you meet them in a neutral place (say a cafe), are they your guest? "guess" seems to suggest that you are inviting them, is that incorrect?

I should probably have given a bit more context. I do need a word, not an alternate phrasing. It's in a programming context; I have a "Meeting" class with a field that describes the person that the user is meeting. I'm looking for a name for that field.
