請教Sorry for的用法

請問

電子郵件上,我們常用Sorry for .....比如:

Sorry for our delay. 若這句沒問題,我想描寫的仔細一點:

Sorry for our delay caused your inconvenience. or

Sorry for our delay causing your inconvenience.

哪一句正確?WHY?

    你所寫的三句皆沒有給予是「誰」很抱歉,並在delay與cause之間沒有連接詞,使得句型不順。

    所以正確的講法應該是

    Sorry for our delay that caused your inconvenience

    但是此講法只適合在對話中使用

    以下是較正式的講法

    如果是很多人的話是這樣:

    We are sorry for our delay (or lateness), hope that doesn't cause any inconvenience

    如果是一個人的話則是這樣:

    I am sorry for my delay (or lateness), hope that doesn't cause any inconvenience

    Sorry for our delay caused your inconvenience.

    Sorry for our delay that caused your inconvenience.

    應為

    Sorry for our delay that is caused your inconvenience.

    關代詞可省略 (that is)

    Sorry for + 理由原因

    sorry for any inconvenience caused

    caused 1.表示過程 2.表示被動

    sscrew up

    caused 1.表示過去 2.表示被動
