    through

    Professors V. Vyazovskiy and Kenneth D. Harris say nothing is worth more than sleeping through the day.

    What does " through" mean in the above sentence?
    Thanks

    Re: through

    "Sleep through (something)" is a phrasal verb meaning "to sleep continuously for a period of time".
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.

    I did ask the poster to think for him/herself.
