When the words 'where' and 'when' are used as pronouns to introduce an adjective clause, is there a tendency to use 'where' to replace 'when' where garmmatically 'when' should be used?
You will see 'where' replacing 'when' sometimes, but that doesn't make it correct. 'where' and 'when' are not interchangeable.
Something like in everyday English, sometimes we say "there's a lot of people waiting at the bus station"? I hear that much too often for my liking. I think it's due to laziness; it's easier and faster to say "there's" than to say 'there are'.
That is, do people say, for example, "a traditional MBA program usually takes two years to complete. It's a time where your efforts and thoughts are very concentrated in one area"?
People say all sort of wrong things.
In the above sentence, you don't even need 'when'. 'time when' is redundant.
It's a time your efforts and thoughs...........'.
