For Life

Hello! How have you been enjoying the autumn days of 2005? This week we'll be looking at the many names we give to the days of the week and the parts of the day. And, as always, we'll be taking it one day at a time - and one WordMaster at a time!

Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違えやすいボキャブラリー


  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are called weekdays.

    Weekday nights are usually called weeknights.

    Be Careful! There are no one-word expressions like weeknight for weekday mornings, afternoons, and evenings. We do NOT say "weekmorning", etc.

    * See the 4 July 2005 WordMaster, “HOLIDAY vs. WEEKEND”.
  • weekday とは、月曜日、火曜日、水曜日、木曜日、金曜日のこと、つまり平日のことをいいます。

    weeknight というと、平日の夜のことをさします。

    注意:weeknight のように、一語で平日の午前、午後、夕方という意味を表す単語はありません。 weekmorning などという表現はなく、weekday morning などといいます。
