    not for another two months

    Which is correct:
    1-His birthday is not for two months.
    2-His birthday is not for another two months.
    3-His birthday is not till two months.
    4-His birthday is not before two months.

    I think '1' and '2' work. I am not sure about the other two.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: not for another two months

    You're right. 3 and 4 don't work.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
