    phrase

    I felt sleepy at day.

    I felt sleepy all day.

    Is the first sentence correct? If so, does it mean the same with the second one? Pls.

    No, the first sentence is not correct.

    No, that doesn't work either. Perhaps you mean: "I feel sleepy during the day".

    Re: phrase

    Is "during the day" equal to "in the day"?
