However, is it grammatically correct to use as an alternative for 'save for' or 'except' ie: "I do not have anything further to comment on the matter, save to say that the parties will work together to resolve the issue."?
I think it is incorrect and that it is being used an erroneous alternative for 'except' and is therefore not grammatically correct to use in this context.
Wondered if anyone could solve our argument?
It strikes me as perfectly acceptable.

AnonymousI do not have anything further to comment on the matter, save to say that the parties will work together to resolve the issue."Correct, but old-fashioned. Even though it is correct, hardly anyone uses save to mean except anymore.
AnonymousSo, it is safe - and not save - to say one can use 'save' in place of 'except'You may on occasion; don't overdo it.
