What's "vis-à-vis" mean and when's it used?
Answer from a Native speaker
"Vis-à-vis" is actually French! But it's used commonly in English. Here, it means in relation to, or with regard to. It can also mean a face-to-face meeting, or a person in the same position elsewhere. Ex: We're both attorneys at different law firms. She's my vis-à-vis. Ex: Where are we vis-à-vis the new project? Can someone update me? = Where are we in regards to the new project? Can someone update me? Ex: I had a vis-à-vis with my accountant this week. It was really helpful.
