How to use privy in a sentence?

  1. Beth Sondel:

    Many of these young kids that the teachers were talking about in our study weren't privy to the policy being presented in the election, but the rhetoric was so strong it was impacting them.

  2. Richard Shelby:

    I’m not the president, but I have a lot of respect for Jeff Sessions. … What goes on between the attorney general and the president I’m not privy to. But I know Jeff Sessions is a man of integrity, a man of purpose and a man of substance. I hope he will stay.

  3. Trisha Harp:

    Harp's data showed that entrepreneurs who set shared long-term business and family goals with their spouses scored higher in every area of satisfaction than those who didn’t. On her surveys, entrepreneurs who set shared business goals were 17 percent happier than those who didn’t; and 27 percent who set shared family goals reported higher levels of satisfaction. Of those who set shared family goals, 98 percent reported being still in love with their spouse. Contrary to what one might believe, Harp's data showed that when entrepreneurs shared both positive and negative aspects of the business on a regular basis, the other spouse's trust and confidence in the entrepreneur actually increased. Sharing on a regular basis increases the spouse's belief in their entrepreneur’s ability to succeed, Harp says. When the entrepreneur chooses not to share, the spouse usually knows when something is wrong, simply by observing his/her partner’s demeanor. The not knowing leads to frustration, anxiety and impatience, Harp says. However, when the entrepreneur shares on a regular basis, the spouse is privy to the solutions the entrepreneur is considering, she adds. And discussions make the non-entrepreneur spouse feel as if he or she is contributing. This helps increase a spouse's ‘buy-in’ and makes them feel like it is ‘our’ company instead of just ‘your company,’.

  4. Armand Balilo:

    We want to peacefully resolve our overlapping exclusive economic zone claims to avoid further friction which may result in an accident, there are ongoing backroom talks to come to an agreement but I am not privy to these talks.

  5. Joseph Votel:

    I'm not privy to any kind of grand bargain discussion or anything like that.
