comment When speaking with client, how to say “I will tell my coworker”
@JesseGood: Regarding your last sentence, (1) aren't you showing respect to the customer? You are passing me msg on to Tanaka for him (similar to お荷物をお持ちしましょうか)? The answer seems to be no but there is some nuance missing here. (2) What would one say if Tanaka was junior to the msg taker?

@snailplane: Thanks. There is always something new with this seemingly easy but pesky word.

If the sentence is correct then context is important. Contrast may be the wrong word. I am trying to come with a Japanese expression with the same nuance as "firm but fair" but have not found one yet.

I saw the で as "and"/"at the same time". Perhaps I have always been wrong but I thought で could be used to convey contrast(?).

Thanks - I've added the kanji. I don't this was why the answer earned a down voted though. If there is something else that is missing/wrong be interested to hear it - we live and learn after all.

comment What is the correct romanization of イー?
Re: "(I stick to Wāpuro rōmaji) use si for し"; in my experience input of either "si" or "shi" will produce し. (I prefer "shi" because that is how it sounds in English.)
