Re: Re: Re: Re:
well.. let´s say it in this way:
a) He works till 5 p.m. every day.
Right. (Explanation: He works the whole day/ from the reporting time to
5 p.m. and not after that.)
b) He works until 5 p.m. every day. (Grammatically wrong and makes no sense!
This proves that till and until are not interchangeable.)
This sentence would work, rather:
He works until its 5 p.m., every day.
(Explanation: He works till the time its 5 p.m. Here, there is no reference
of the time-period before 5p.m.)
The difference, probably, must be evident to you by now. Contrary to what you
and most websites concerning English writing and grammar tell, there is a big
(though, hardly noticeable) difference between the two words.
Till- When you use till, you refer to the entire time-period concerned up to
the point in time or the point of action
Until- When you have to refer to a point in time, and nothing
Maybe we can, very often, use ?Till? instead of ?Until?, but not
?Until? may be regarded as a variant of ?Before?. However, we can never use
?Till? in the place of ?Before?.
I´d like to know your oppinion about that
