I received the following message and I was confused.

"Will you be free to have the ABC meeting rescheduled to Monday?"

Which is the correct interpretation of the question, - the speaker ask me if I can reschedule the meeting to Monday? or - the speaker ask me if I am available on Monday to attend the meeting?

I wonder if the question was ambiguous?



As an AE speaker, I find that a very odd way to write.

Nevertheless, it means "are you free monday if we reschedule the ABC meeting to then"

  • Yes… that's at best a silly way to say Is it OK for/by you if the ABC meeting is rescheduled to Monday? – Robbie Goodwin Sep 27 '17 at 23:12
