    Early or earlier

    Hi guys,

    Please check. "I am doing these cases earlier today or early today"

    "Our pick up will be done ten minutes early tommorow or earlier tomorrow". Could you please explain difference between early and earlier.

    Re: Early or earlier

    OK tufguy. I give up.

    You have been told at least three times now (once by me and twice by other moderators) that you must separate the phrases you are querying within their own set of quotation marks. Yet again, you have put "earlier today or early today" and "early tomorrow or earlier tomorrow" instead of "earlier today" or "early today" and "early tomorrow" or "earlier tomorrow".

    In a previous thread, I told you to read our advice carefully and to take your time and be more careful. You are just continuing as you were before.

    I am closing this thread. Think long and hard about whether you want our help. If you do, you can post this question again using the correct construction.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
