Hi!

If a wish is to be granted, how about a request?
Would it be 'to be considered'?

Thanks!Emotion: smile

When "wish" and "request" are used as synonyms, both may be "considered" and both may be "granted."

But when "granting a wish" is an act of magic, who's to do the considering? Emotion: thinking

When an action is passive, the actor need not be named. Your question assumes the structures are parallel, and in some ways they can be - but not in all ways.

Could you please tell me your implication about my question?
I'm sorry, but I don't get what you mean.

Perhaps you approve a request, instead of granting it?
Hi GG!

Yeah! why not?! That must be the word I'm looking for. "Approved a request" , sounds good, really.

Thanks!Emotion: smile
I agree.

But I wouldn't go so far as to say,
"The judge granted my request for a postponement" should never be used. Emotion: smile

Google, two to one!

I'm sorry, but I don't get what you mean. The board considered my wish/request for a leave of absence.

The board granted my wish/request for a leave of absence.

My implications are:
(1) These are two different processes. Your question seems to be trying to treat them as one.

(2) You MAY use "granted."

(3) Your choice of a complicated tense (to be granted/considered) masks the fact that "wish" has another possible meaning, making you question open to interpretation.

I agree that what I said here was not clear. I struggled with it! Emotion: headbang

Best wishes, - A. Emotion: smile

Aha! I see. Thanks A!
Regarding my question, I really didn't know that it had those things. Forgive me. Emotion: bow
No problem at all.

I'm glad we got GG's attention, because her solution is best by far.
