    Default Grammar check

    Firstly, I am sorry for previous post.
    What is the difference between "did you work today" and "have you worked today"?

    Default Re: Grammar check

    "Did you work today" - the speaker sees the working day as finished.
    "Have you worked today"? - The speaker still considers the day as continuing.

    Which is used depends on how the speaker sees things at the moment of speaking.
