    Next The Next

    Hi, folks,
    Id like to know which is correct:
    a. Next time you do it youll be punished.
    b. The next time you do it youll be punished.

    In the examples, you could use it with or without the article. Putting the article in could allow the speaker to place more emphasis on the word 'next' to add some extra power.
