    a few weeks more / a few more weeks

    Dear teachers,

    is there any difference in meaning between these two sentences?

    1.
    I was staying there for a few more weeks before I came back to New York.

    2.
    I was staying there for a few weeks more before I came back to New York.

    Thank you.

    Kitty

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Great news!!!


    (1) In October, 2010, member Pedroski gave his explanation.

    (2) He did not claim that it had to be the only explanation, but

    I have accepted it. Now I no longer go crazy trying to analyze it.

    (3) After you read it, you can make your own decision.

    (4) Since I'm too computer illiterate to link, please go to the

    "search" box at the top of the page and type:


    Which one is true? 131759
