    the crisis in June

    Can one use:
    1) The crisis in June took a turn for the worse.
    instead of:
    2) The crisis took a turn of the worse in June.


    The meaning of 2 is clear. The crisis existed before June but took a turn for the worse in June.

    1 seems odd to me. It would make sense if the sentence is about a point of time in June.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: the crisis in June

    Your sentence 2 is incorrect with "turn of the worse".

    Re: the crisis in June

    Thank you very much Mike and my apologies for the mistake.

    It had to be:

    2) The crisis took a turn for the worse in June.

    I do not know how I made that mistake and how I did not notice it when I reread my post.

    Sorry.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: the crisis in June

    Thank you both very much.

    It is probably a mistake to never make mistakes. One would not know that feeling.

    But I am asking a question here and I really do have to be more careful. There is a time and place for everything, even for messing things up!

    Respectfully,
    Navi.
