I was trying to write a formal email to my manager stating that the change controls are put on hold. For 'put on hold', i meant that the change controls are on 'hold' status and are no more processed. Saying things are put on hold is different than kept on hold. Keeping something on hold, means that sometime has passed and it's still on hold, while put refers to the action of going to put it on hold.
So what is the correct usage - 'Put on hold' or 'kept on hold'. Srekk 97 2 2 9. Use neither keep nor put: The change controls are on hold. MaulikV - I don't like that suggestion one bit.
