    use of "next time"

    Hello everybody!

    Is there any difference at all between 'Next time I come to Warsaw, I will call you up' and 'When I come to Warsaw next time, I will call you up'?

    I think the second version is less common?

    What do you think of my reasoning?

    Thank you.

    You don't give your reasoning for your opinion, but I agree with you.
    You could also say, "When I come to Warsaw next, I will call you." 'Next' by itself doesn't work with the first sentence.

    Re: use of "next time"

    I agree that the second is probably less common. Unfortunately, I don't know of any way of confirming this, short of counting through hundreds of similar sentences in the corpora. Possibly a corpus/computer whizzkid could find one. Is there anyone out there?
