    Default Re: in the month to come // in the following month

    It can, but I think "in the month to come" can also mean "sometime in the next 30-day period."

    For example, it's June 12 today. "In the month to come" could mean anytime between now and July 12 (or so). However "in the following month" I would assume it means the month of July. More natural for that, however, is "next month."

    Can I say "within a month" in place of in the month to come?
