Hello,

Can you please, help me to find a word meaning only just or check if I can use only just in this context:

Phase five relates to the revision or review of only just completed negotiations as well as to the learning on the basis of acquired knowledge.

I have a strong feeling that something is wrong here as far as articles are concerned. If you see a mistake, please let me know.

Thank you in advance

Very recently
? Only just confuses me here.

Yes, I don't like the learning, but I think the whole phrase needs revision to avoid it. Now, if I only knew what learning on the basis of acquired knowledge means!
Hello Mr M!

The author of this text divides the process of negotiation in several phases. This sentence explains, or at least should explain what generally happens in the phase 5. It relates to the revision of recently completed negotiations and it also relates to absorbing all the knowledge and experience that was accumulated in the recent negotiations or learning through or from this experience.

Thank you for your time and effort Mister M

I think you would be better (generally) to be more direct; for example:

Phase Five is the review of recently completed negotiations and what has been learned from them.

You often seem to get trapped in grammatical complexes of overly thick language. (In this case, by the way, I don't think they would be permitted to revise the negotiated agreement-- that would tend to raise the ire of the party of the second part.)
Thank you MrM.

p.s. what kind of language is thick ?
Densely populated. Lots of formal nouns and noun phrases, complex coordinated clauses, polysyllabic verbs, etc. As a result of the exacerbation by rather than aggravated by-- that kind of thing, you know. Even the most abstruse scientific papers throw in a simple one-clause declarative sentence from time to time.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Of course. And this is not such scientific paper, it's about negotiation, pretty common thing.

Thank you
"scarcely"? "just about"?
Perhaps it fits even better. Thank you Pieanne
