"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

In Friday morning OR On Friday morning?

ElleElle Posts: 506 ✭✭✭✭
Hello my dear friends.

I have a question of using preposition...
Which one is correct between 'in' and 'on'?

1. In Friday morning
2. On Friday morning

Some people say #1 is correct because Friday comes first than 'morning'. We use 'on' with date, for example, on Friday.
However, some other people say #2 is correct because whichever comes in front of morning, it doesn't affect 'morning'. Therefore, it's still used 'in'.

What do you think?
Does anyone knows about clear answer of this?

I need your help @Lynne @Bubbly @NatashaT :)

    Hi @Elle ! Long time no see :)
    I think your explanations got mixed around (your explanation for version 1 is actually explaining version 2!) but we would say ´on Friday morning´.

    You can say 'I'll see you in the morning.' But you have to say 'I'll see you on Friday morning.' Here you are being more specific. In the morning can mean any morning and is more general.

    Generally, if someone says, "I'll see you in the morning" they mean the next morning, but there is no specified time.

    I am thinking "On Friday morning" is correct.
