in one's place

請問這個片語意思是不是"代替某人"的意思

例如他去出差,所以我代替他發這封信

這個時候可以用這個片語嗎??

    你是正確的....

    in one's place

    是 片語: 代替某人;在某人的立場上

    也可用 instead 如:

    他去出差,所以我代替他發這封信

    He is our ofr business, so I send this mail instead.

    Li's example is probably not the best one.

    "so I send this mail instead."的語氣在我聽來是"所以我發這封信(而不是那個信)". The word, "instead," alone is not a good substitute.
