revert to ≠ reply to

Do you know, the phrase “revert to you” does not mean “reply to you”? Honestly, I don’t, until recently when I read the following article (click on the images to enlarge them).

I’ve made this mistake many times. I bet many of you have done the same.

Note to self: It’s reply to, not revert to. Must remember that.

Thank you English Corner!

Hi Dieya,
Your English corner is very interesting. Reminds me of English classes during my high school days.
