I've often heard people say "appreciate it" instead of "thank you." Is it actually they are saying "appreciated"? I wonder this because the sentence "appreciate it" does not have a subject so it sounds like an imperative sentence. So I'm afraid of using it on a written sentence because the reader may take it I'm commanding to appreciate something.
Could somebody clarify it? Thanks.
The phrase is a short form of 'I appreciate it'.
It's just for casual conversation, not for writing. Write it in full.
Anonymous:Thanks for such a quick reply. I see, the subject is omitted.
What about when I write in twitter or mail for friends? Is it okey to I omit I (the subject)?
Anonymous:I belive 'appreciate it' is not correct grammer format as it would infer that please appreciate it and not 'your efforts/work appreciated'.
Why to make more words when same can be achieved in proper english grammatical way- appreciated. (For reading this)
Anonymous:Try grammar, not grammet for Pete's sake.
