The Word "Utilize"

by Sara

Can the word "utilize" be used for human beings/individuals?

For example:

"A professional operator was utilized to control the mission."

Is the usage of the word "utilize" in the sentence above correct?


No, you usually wouldn't use "utilize" on people.

To UTILIZE means to use something, not someone :)
