Could anyone answer this question, please?
If someone apologize, and you reply "Well... I appreciate your mentioning it."
I'm going to have a presentation about apology response strategies, there is an apology respone strategies Rejection, and Thanking is a sub-strategy under rejection for example "Er thank for apologizing anyway."
I want to ask you can "Well... I appreciate your mentioning it." be ranked as thanking sub-strategy.
