    ending phrase with "then"

    What's the meaning of the "then" word at the end of the phrase or sentece. Or to put it another way - how does "then" modify the meaning of the phrase if I append it to the sentece.

    Examples:

    See you tomorrow.
    See you tomorrow then.


    Thank you.

    JHi,
    Then means in that case, taking into consideration all the facts.
    A.- Why don't you drop in for a cup of tea? Come this afternoon.
    B.- Sorry, I'm busy today. But tomorrow I could see you after six.
    A. -Good! See you tomorrow then.


    Regards
