'Respond' is a verb. He didn't respond to my question.
'Response' is a noun.Our letters have never met with any response.
"Excellent is an adjective. ... an excellent plan.
'Excellence' is a noun. ... a school noted for its academic excellence.

What about "responds?"

Are they interchangable? "Send a response" vs "send a responds"

I've seen it used on the web and in some documentation. Also spell checks let it slide. Though I'm guessing that's because it can be used like this: "He responds quickly."

(Typing this out, I'm pretty sure I just answered my own question. Oh well, I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought this.)

Thanks!

Hi,
I am always confuse with these words.

"We confirm the receipt of your mail and will revert with our respond as soon as possible."

Say:



"We confirm the receipt of your email / your letterand will respond as soon as possible."
