    Timely fashion means?

    Dear teachers,
    Please help me!
    1. I read the phrase "timely fashion" so many times but I do not understand clearly what this pharse means?
    2. He gave me some explicit instructions?

    Some words which are opposite with explicit?
    thanks a lot.

    A "timely fashion" means in a "suitable time"

    You should always return phone calls in a timely fashion if you want to keep your friends.

    "Vague" is the opposite of "explicit". For more words, look them up in a dictionary or thesaurus.

    The opposite of "explicit" is "implicit".
