    Date

    Is it correct to refer to a date even though only the month and year are indicated? Would the use of "date" in the sentence below be correct?

    "You just have to make a decision by June 2011. Until that date, you can do as you please."

    Thanks!

    I'd say "Until then...", June 2011 is not a date in my opinion.
