Hi everybody,

one day, when I was trying to write an email to my colleague, I wrote following sentence immediately without thinking about it:

I sent email to John to explain me how he ment it. So will see what he writes...

and now question. Should be there "So we will..." or is it enough to let it as it is without subject?
Generally, can I use e.g. at the end of the chatting "will see" only and not "we'll see" ?

Thanks!

AnonymousI sent email to John to explain me how he ment it. So will see what he writes...
Here's what I would write:

I sent an email to John to explain how he meant it, so we'll see what he writes.

Just will see is very "telegraphic". Use it only when you have to be brief.

Hmm. I think the thing is that "we'll" and "will" can be pronounced the same way, so it might lead to some misspellings...

"So will see what he writes..." is an abbreviated style of English. In a suitable context, such as an informal note, it is not wrong. However, it feels as if you are writing in shorthand, and it is not a suitable style for more formal or polished writing. My default assumption, by the way, would be that you meant "So I will see..." rather than "So we will see".

Your first sentence has several problems and I am not quite sure who is explaining what to whom. If I understood it correctly, you could say "I sent an email to John asking him to explain what he meant."
