AAE Q156: 'as per'

Hi

What is the origin of "as per" and is it outdated to use it ?

Lim


Hi,

'as per'

definition: according to
example: 'as per your instructions'
origin: 'per' originates from Latin, 'as per' dates back to 1782

I don't think it is old fashioned although it is used in academic writing and journalism more than in spoken language.
