My student's telephone does not work. She wrote to the landlord and wanted her to take a look at it. She wrote:
I am at home every night so you can come by anytime.
I do not think the language is proper. She wrote 'every night' and 'anytime' for it may cause ambiguousness. So could I advise her to change the sentence to:
I am at home after 18:00, so you could come before 20:00.
What's your opinion?
I don't think many landlords/landladies would turn up at midnight so I don't think there's too much danger of ambiguity in the original. I would have been happy with:
I'm home every evening from 6pm so please come any time after that.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
