    Specifically tomorrow

    Hallo!

    Is it correct to say "Specifically tomorrow" if you mean that something will happen this very day?
    Thank you!

    No—'this very day' is today – not tomorrow.

    Re: Specifically tomorrow

    But how to say the same about tomorrow? What will mean if to say "Specifically tomorrow"?

    Re: Specifically tomorrow

    I can't think of a context in which 'specifically tomorrow' sounds natural.

    Re: Specifically tomorrow

    "Tomorrow" should be specific enough unless you have a particular time in mind.

    Re: Specifically tomorrow

    There is only one "tomorrow", so "specifically" is redundant.
