Hello there!

I actually need help related to this sentence.

When apologizing to someone, for the inconvenience, what do you think with this sentence below?


I am sorry for any inconvenience you caused in this matter.


I found it's a wrong call to use the word "you" to that sentence.

Is my understanding wrong?

Appreciate if someone can advise this query.

Many thanks for your help.

It doesn't sound right to me too. It sounds as if you were apologizing to him for the mistake that he caused to you. That's what I understand of it.



I suggest you to write your thread in the grammar forum.

Say

eg I am sorry for any inconvenience I have caused you in this matter.

eg I am sorry for any inconvenience I have caused.

eg I am sorry for any inconvenience.
