Can somebody explaint to me when I can use "meet specification" and "met specification"
I need English help
thank you David.
there also exists the context that in contracting, if a building project meets spec(ification) it is up to code and passes inspection.
Thank you James
"Meet" is present tense, and "met" is past. The article is missing, but this could be a headline format, in which no articles are used.
"Meet specification" sounds like a command or a plural subject ("the parts meet (the) specification"), and "met specification" sounds like a report that something (a mechanical part, etc.) has met a certain specification (condition, requirement, etc.).
