please take a look at this,
" We will discuss this topic later on."
I really can't figure out when exactly "later on" implies.
Is it more like "in a few minutes"?
Or is it more like "in a few days"?
Or is it impossible to tell?
Thanks a bunch!
It depends on the context.
In a seminar that lasts an hour it means in less than 60 minutes.
In a lecture outlining a term's coursework it could mean in six weeks.
