Hi,

which one is correct ?

I can buy you a cake as per your request

I can buy you a cake as per your requested

The latter. But it's awkward and ugly English. Say 'I can buy you a cake as you requested.'

Hi Clive,

Why no need to add "per" ? I always heard the people say : as per your requested, I will ...... or .......... as per your requested.

Please correct me.

Thanks / Zoe
Hi Zoe,

I can buy you a cake as per your request

I can buy you a cake as per your requested

The latter. Let me begin by saying that I meant to type 'the former', and instead I carelessly typed 'the latter'. I apologize. Your first version above is correct, and the second is incorrect. If you say 'as per', the stucture requires that you follow 'as per' with a noun phrase, not with a verb. eg 'as per your letter' is correct.

But it's awkward and ugly English. What I meant here was that 'as per . . . ' is ugly English. It's not necessary. You can say it in nicer ways. eg Say 'I can buy you a cake as you requested.'

Why no need to add "per" ? I always heard the people say : as per your requested, I will ...... or .......... as per your requested.

Please correct me. They are probably saying 'request' and you are are incorrectly hearing 'requested'. If they are really saying 'as per your requested', this is bad English.
