    Default Re: some time, sometime, some times and sometimes

    1. 'It will rain at times today' (every so often). 'At time' is not used.

    2. Some time are an adjective and a noun; sometime is an adverb.

    'I spent some time shopping.' 'Come and see me sometime.'

    3. Same as 2.

    'Give me some times when I could make an appointment.' 'I sometimes like to go swimming.'

    4. Already answered.
