Though "I need to hand in my homework by tomorrow" actually means you need to hand it in today.  

Szkot

I need to hand in my homework tomorrow (future situation) I will need to hand in my homework tomorrow (future situation) These mean the same thing. I need to hand in my homework by tomorrow (present situation) This means you need to hand it in today or tomorrow  

I disagree. "I need to have handed it in by tomorrow" means I need to hand it in today or tomorrow. "I need to hand it in by tomorrow" means I need to hand it in today.

“By Tomorrow” – Learn What It Actually Means! (Examples & Facts)

The phrase “by tomorrow” is something that we might hear in English, especially when someone is setting a deadline for something. It would help to know what it means and whether it also includes “tomorrow” as part of the deadline or not, so this article will explain it.

What Does “By Tomorrow” Mean?

“By tomorrow” means that something has a deadline of “tomorrow” and should be completed at some point before the end of “tomorrow.” “By tomorrow” includes “tomorrow,” as long as it’s finished before the end of the day. “By” does not mean “before;” in this case, it means “due.”

What Does "By Tomorrow" Mean?

We use “by tomorrow” to talk about something that is due at a certain time. That time generally happens between today and tomorrow (depending on the urgency of the task).

We can also replace “tomorrow” with any other day, like “by Monday” or “by the weekend.” In all cases, as long as the deadline is met (i.e., it happens no later than the specified day), then the “by” phrase will be correct.

Examples Of How To Use “By Tomorrow” In A Sentence

Let us explain a little more about how it works by including some examples. With the help of these examples, you’ll have a much better time understanding what “by tomorrow” means and how you can use it.

  • I want these papers on my desk by tomorrow, or it’ll be the end of your career!
  • I need these documents by tomorrow to plan my next move.
  • Apparently, my delivery will arrive by tomorrow, but I don’t know whether I can trust the service!
  • She wants your answer by tomorrow, which gives you plenty of time to think about it.
  • I let him sleep on it and told him I expected his decision by tomorrow.
  • By tomorrow, it will be too late for any of us to enjoy our time together because we’ll all be heading home!
  • You have to text me the information by tomorrow; otherwise, I don’t know where I’m going.

“By tomorrow” means that something is due tomorrow, and that thing could be delivered at any point in the day. There’s also a chance that we can deliver the thing earlier than “tomorrow”(i.e., “today”).

It’s just a way for somebody to set a deadline for us, and we usually have to follow such a deadline. Typically, we’ll be given a reason alongside the deadline to explain what would happen if we didn’t get our task done on time.

Does “By Tomorrow” And “Today” Mean The Same?

There are a few ways you might use a phrase that sets a deadline. We could say something like:

  • I need this by tomorrow.
  • I need this today.

Of course, both “by tomorrow” and “today” are ways to set deadlines, but do they mean the same thing?

“By tomorrow” and “today” do not mean the same. “By tomorrow” gives us a chance to hand in the task today or tomorrow, while “today” limits us to only handing in something today; otherwise, we will be past the deadline.

If someone says that something must be handed in “today,” it’s usually an urgent task. Hopefully, there will already have been ample warning for you to make sure you were prepared to hand it in; otherwise, you might not have time to finish the task, depending on how long it takes to finish.

Can “Tomorrow” And “By Tomorrow” Ever Be Used Interchangeably?

We could also use “tomorrow” in place of “today,” but does “tomorrow” mean the same as “by tomorrow?”

“Tomorrow” means that something has to be handed in tomorrow. It means we can’t hand it in today or any day after tomorrow. On the other side, “by tomorrow” means today or tomorrow, depending on the task. Therefore, the phrases are not interchangeable.

“Tomorrow” is closer in meaning to “by tomorrow” than “today” was in the previous section. However, it’s still not exactly correct.

“Tomorrow” is far too specific about when we have to hand something in.

  • I need these papers tomorrow. (Deadline is tomorrow, no earlier and no later)
  • I need these papers by tomorrow. (Deadline is tomorrow, but earlier is acceptable)

As you can see, “tomorrow” is more specific, while “by tomorrow” allows for much more leniency in the delivery.

What Is The Difference Between “By Tomorrow” And “On Tomorrow”?

The preposition “by” is a great way to show when something needs to be delivered. Of course, that doesn’t stop some people from wanting to try other prepositions, and that’s where we come across phrases like “on tomorrow.”

You should use “by tomorrow” when setting someone a deadline that ends at the end of the day tomorrow. “On tomorrow” is not a correct phrase on its own, and we typically use it with “tomorrow” in the possessive form (i.e., “on tomorrow’s program”).

“On” is not the right preposition to use with “tomorrow.” There is no reason to specify that we’re “on” a day like “tomorrow” because it doesn’t add anything extra to the meaning.

You’ll only see it when “tomorrow” is in the possessive form, as follows :

  • On tomorrow’s show, you’ll find out what happened.
  • On tomorrow’s showings, you’ll see a movie you’ve wanted to see forever.

We might also ask what’s on TV tomorrow. As you can tell, the theme for using “on tomorrow” mostly works for television rather than any other context:

  • What’s on tomorrow?

According to Google Ngram Viewer , “by tomorrow” is vastly more popular than “on tomorrow.” This shows that “by tomorrow” is the only correct choice when setting a deadline, while “on tomorrow” only applies when you’re talking about a program or something on television.

on tomorrow vs by tomorrow

Is It Ever Correct To Use “At Tomorrow”?

We can also try and look into another preposition before “tomorrow,” which is “at.” Unlike “on tomorrow,” there are no valid situations where “at tomorrow” makes sense, unless you’re speaking in colloquial cases.

It is never correct to use “at tomorrow” in formal writing. There are very few cases informally where you might use it (i.e., “where are you at tomorrow?”).

According to Google Ngram Viewer , “at tomorrow” is the least popular preposition of the three, and for a good reason. It’s not commonly used except in rare informal cases, so you won’t see it work well compared with “by tomorrow” or even “on tomorrow.

on tomorrow vs by tomorrow vs at tomorrow

What Is The Difference Between “By Tomorrow” And “Until Tomorrow?

One other preposition we want to go through is “until,” which is possible to use with the word “tomorrow.” It will help you to understand how it works.

“By tomorrow” sets a deadline for something for the end of the day tomorrow. “Until tomorrow” is what we say when we’re expecting to do something or see someone again tomorrow, and we’re waiting for that point in time to occur.

“Until tomorrow” doesn’t have the same meaning as “by tomorrow,” and we’ll use it in different ways. Here are the most common ways to see it written:

  • Until tomorrow, I guess this is goodbye! See you again soon!
  • I will have to wait for this until tomorrow, which is really annoying.
  • Until tomorrow comes, there isn’t much more we can do about this.
  • Till tomorrow arrives, we’re just going to have to sit and watch the paint dry.
  • He won’t be here till tomorrow, but you can make yourself at home while we wait.

“Until” and “till” are synonymous, which means we can use either variation in sentences. Typically, “till” is slightly less formal, so it works better in spoken English than anything else.

Is It “By Tomorrow Noon” Or “By Noon Tomorrow”?

What happens if we want to specify the time “tomorrow” that the deadline is set? We might include words like “noon” or “night,” but we need to make sure we’re getting the structure correct before writing it.

“By noon tomorrow” is correct when you want to set a deadline for midday tomorrow. We place the time of day before the day itself to show when something has to happen, and it’s rare that the other way around is seen.

To prove this, take a look at Google Ngram Viewer . Here, we can see that “by noon tomorrow” is the preferred option, and there’s quite a large difference in usage between the two phrases.

by tomorrow noon vs by noon tomorrow

While “by tomorrow noon” does occasionally get used, it is not correct grammatically. We have to place the time before the day when we’re speaking in this way, so make sure you say “noon tomorrow.”

What Does “Delivery By Tomorrow” Mean?

“Delivery by tomorrow” means that your delivery will arrive today or tomorrow.

If you’ve sent for a delivery or ordered something online, you’re often given a deadline of when that will arrive. That deadline will usually say “by” and then give you a date or specific day of the week.

In these cases, you can expect your delivery to arrive at some point within the next few days, and it won’t arrive any later than “tomorrow” in the case of “by tomorrow.”

  • You will receive your delivery by tomorrow.
  • Your delivery will arrive by Monday.

Future tenses exercise: choosing from mixed future tenses

by Phil Williams | Apr 29, 2013 | Exercises , Grammar | 35 comments

i my homework by tomorrow

please! Can you leave a difference of will and going to future because, sometimes it’s difficult to answer and you can get confuse

Phil Williams

Hi Elsa – though it’s not always a hard rule, one way to decide is if a future event is known or planned in advance (going to) vs recently decided (will). There’s a bit on that here: https://englishlessonsbrighton.co.uk/use-future-simple-planned-unplanned-events/

Vidya

Can we say I will be waiting in the shelter until the bus comes. On Friday at 8 O’Clock, I will be meeting my friend.

With apologies, my initial reply to this was brief and unhelpful – both of these sentences are grammatically correct but would require a particular context to be used. Most likely in both cases the simple future would be more appropriate (“I will wait” / “I will meet/am meeting”) – unless you wish to discuss the meeting being in progress at 8 or the process of waiting for the bus (usually to discuss the duration). Though ultimately it depends on context, so feel free to share more information about the sentences and what you wish to express.

Simon also wrote this explanation: these sentences are not grammatically bad, but if placed in their most probable context they are deviant. In a probable context the first would much more naturally be ‘I will wait in the shelter until the bus comes’ (i.e. not merely a prediction but a declaration of intention), and the second would more naturally be ‘I’m meeting my friend on Friday at eight (o’clock)’ (i.e. not only expressing a declaration of intention but announcing that this meeting has been arranged with ‘my friend’).

Milan

Can we use “it will be snowing” in sentence no. 3? I saw a similar example somewhere, and it said I should use “it will be snowing” instead of “it will snow”.

Yes, you can, but more commonly we refer to snowing or raining as an overall act of weather in the simple tense for the past and future, while we’d use the continuous to refer to the ongoing rain/snow. So we’d be more likely to use the continuous if we’re emphasising that it is happening, rather than the nature of the weather, if that makes sense (for example, it would be appropriate in a context of “You shouldn’t drive tomorrow, as it will be snowing and you won’t be able to see well.”)

Nicole

choose the right form of future : in this sentence ” I found a good deal on a booking site, I ……. (travel) to Thailand this summer” should we use “I’m going to travel” or “I will Travel” or something else

It could be going to, will or a present continuous form depending on the context. Typically “will” would be used if the discovery/decision was more recent, while “I’m going to” would suggest a more determined/concrete plan, and “I’m travelling” would be a more casual comment/plan.

Shimal

A nice worksheet first I was making mistakes but I understood the concept after seeing the answers.

Tim

Is it true that english only has twelve grammar tenses? and is there any difference between american and british english when it comes to the usage of the english grammar tenses? if so, which tenses?

Hi Tim, The way we describe the tenses can very much depend on our purpose and particular schools of thinking – some grammars define it as twelve tenses (as I present in my own book) to show the 3 times, past, present and future, and their four forms, but others would describe this as two or three tenses (past and present as the only ‘morphological’ tense, and future as a tense using auxiliaries), with four ‘aspects’ each. On the other extreme, there are ways to describe other particular functions as tenses, too, so it really depends on how much detail we wish to go into. When it comes to British vs US, there are differences, yes – most generally it comes between how we use simple vs continuous or how we use the perfect tenses – though these will also vary within the countries so I wouldn’t venture to give a definitive list. The differences aren’t especially dramatic, though, and shouldn’t have a huge impact on meaning; it will often occur when we might consider the tense use fairly flexible anyway.

so essentially there isn’t any difference in terms of the functions of each tense. but more of the situation in which we use the tense, that differentiates british and US?

For instance, while british tend to use present perfect for actions that happened recently, but americans prefer using the simple past for such cases, but still its more of a choice rather than an actual technical difference (meaning to say for example that both british and american english recognise that simple past and present perfect can be used for actions that happenend in the past, however recent that past is, but that its only for british english that prefers to employ the use of present perfect for recent past actions, but in american english, they tend to use simple past – still, technically both simple past and present perfect can be used for past actions, so it really boils down more to a style/preference rather than actual difference in defining the uses/functions of each tense)?

Hi Tim, I’m not an expert on American linguistics so I’d hesitate to give any absolutes myself, but yes I would essentially say that’s the case. The crossover in such areas tends to be where within each culture the meaning will still be clear, as you say a matter that reflects preference over a difference in meaning. Likewise Americans might use a continuous tense for states/feelings where British would use the present simple, but the understanding in both situations would be clear (that it is a temporary state). This likely varies not just between American and British usage but within the countries themselves.

Álvaro

Why do we use “will” instead of “be going to” in sentence number 21? Don’t we know that the doctor is going to be at that time??

Hi Alvaro, This one is rather flexible – you’re correct as it’s a planned event we might use ‘be going to’, but ‘will’ would be more natural according to the rule that it has an immediate impact on the present moment, in this case as it affects the person who is concerned with when he will be back. That said, either/or would be acceptable here.

Anakut

i still don’t understand when to use will and going to, but this Future tenses exercise help me to get through this. thanks …

Joe MAma

I dont think these are the correct answers these are a mix of futere+Present tense please lemme know

Hi Joe, as it says in the intro the future tense can be formed with the present simple and the present continuous for future meaning, so the exercise has taken some examples of this into account.

Candace

Question 22. Could you also say, I will have lived?

Hi Candace, yes you could and it would make sense; the continuous would be more appropriate as an ongoing/temporary experience so the choice might depend on if you want to emphasise that it is a complete period of time or an ongoing activity that you consider will later change. In practice, there would probably be little difference and some speakers might choose either option, though.

Thank you. I understand.

Simon Jackson

The punctuation of sentence 21 is faulty (to give the intended meaning and intonation, there should be a comma after the word ‘sorry’), the word ‘practise’ when used as a verb (as it appears twice on this page) should be so spelt, not ‘practice’ this side of the Atlantic anyway, and most importantly it is very misleading and confusing for students, as is evident from Candace’s question, to give only one ‘correct answer’ for 20 of the 30 sentences, when in reality (in all but about six cases) one or more alternative verb forms would also be possible, depending of course on the context and the likely situation.

You’ve now added the missing comma to sentence 21 and you’ve corrected one of the instances of misspelt ‘practise’ but for some reason not the other (‘Complete the following sentences choosing the correct future tense form for the verb in brackets, and practice lessons learnt in The English Tenses Practical Grammar Guide’), unless ‘practice’ here is meant to be a noun being used adjectivally, which seems hardly credible. Keep trying!

Thanks for your feedback, I have made those changes now!

Ann

Why the second one is “are going to have” but not ” are having”

Hi Ann, this could be either, you are correct – depending on the context we might choose one or another version of the future simple (will, going to, or present continuous). Though the important thing here is more to get the difference between the future simple and the other tenses.

jagruti

why there is not given writing option?

I’m not sure I understand the question, do you mean why you can’t write the answers on the page? It’s quite a basic setup.

Sam

Why is the present simple used in sentence 8?

Hi Sam, as a general rule it’s a first conditional, where we use a present simple ‘if’ clause for a future possibility, combined with the future clause for the result.

In response to Vidya: Can we say I will be waiting in the shelter until the bus comes. On Friday at 8 O’Clock, I will be meeting my friend, Phil Williams says; Yes, those are fine (though we don’t need a capital letter for o’clock). Vidya’s question evidently means: are these sentences ‘good English’ i.e. not classifiable as ‘bad grammar’. All this kind of question-and-answer indicates to me is how valueless it is to students to discuss sentences taken out of context: yes, these sentences are not grammatically bad, but if placed in their most probable context they are deviant. In a probable context the first would much more naturally be ‘I will wait in the shelter until the bus comes’ (i.e. not merely a prediction but a declaration of intention), and the second would more naturally be ‘I’m meeting my friend on Friday at eight (o’clock)’ (i.e. not only expressing a declaration of intention but announcing that this meeting has been arranged with ‘my friend’). ‘My friend’ is, incidentally, a rather unnatural expression in English: if what is meant is ‘my boyfriend/girlfriend’ then it is more natural to say so, otherwise (unless the speaker really has only one friend) an expression like ‘a friend of mine’ is more usual. Does the answer ‘Yes, those are fine’ mean that the future continuous versions of these sentences are just as valid as the ‘correct’ versions? If not, what does it mean?

Marina

Hallo. How often is used the Future Perfect Continuous Tense?

It’s quite rare, I would say; it’s mostly just to demonstrate a time duration to a point in the future, which is not something we do very often.

Chloe

question 26, can i use will be living? ques. 28, does “are u taking”works? and for ques. 30 can i use am checking?

Sorry for the slow response. They are good questions, which provide quite subtle/nuanced answers. 26 – you can but it would change the meaning slightly; “I will live” puts more emphasis on being determined to do it, while “I will be living” would typically mean you expect to be in process of it (more a neutral fact). 28 – yes, you could say “are you taking”, again with a slight difference that “are you going to take” / “will take” would suggest a determination/intention whereas “are you taking” is a more neutral plan (i.e. it’s established). In both these cases, however, there may be little real difference in how they are interpreted. 30 – no, this one is different, because we have “now” – “I am checking” would mean you are in the process of it, whereas “will/am going to check” suggest you are about to start.

i my homework by tomorrow

I set my kids extra homework and fine them for bad behaviour

  • Rosie Graham, 29, from Bedfordshire is an unapologetically strict mother  
  • READ MORE:  I get shamed by other mothers for being naturally pretty with a good figure - they're just jealous because I don't need lip filler to look nice

A mother-of-three has revealed her controversial parenting quirks and said she doesn't care if 'lazy parents' don't like them.

Rosie Graham, 29, from Bedfordshire, gives her children extra homework as she doesn't feel she can rely on schools to provide them with a full education.

The parent insists that the additional workload works wonders for her three children, six-year-old Hunter, five-year-old Dakota, and two-year-old Saint.

This includes doing worksheets on the weekend, as well as learning various life skills like helping around the house.

The busy mother is not afraid to penalise her kids if they've not followed her rules, claiming she is preparing them for the real world where actions have consequences.

Rosie said: 'I don't rely solely on the school system to educate my children because teachers are under so much pressure to teach well with a mountain of paperwork.

'They don't have the time to work one-to-one with children and give my children undivided attention when it comes to teaching.

'The UK school system is lacking funding and it's unfair to expect teachers to teach a whole class of varying needs to an exceptional level.

'I see the school system as a support to my children's education, it's a luxury that so many people around the world don't have access to an education.

'It is not a teacher's job to raise our children - it's our job. My children's school have fantastic teachers but that doesn't mean that it should be down solely to them.

'As a parent, it is my responsibility to make sure my children are educated, the school system is a luxury bonus.

'We do maths, English and science every weekend, in the form of worksheets, experiments and daily life.

'Saint also does extra activities to practice his fine motor skills, flash cards and educational games.

'I also teach them life skills cooking, cleaning and survival skills such as making shelters, staying safe in water and identifying plants.'

Rosie, who shares her insights on TikTok  account @liferaisingthree , also has strict meal and bed times that her children follow.

She said: 'Children in between these ages need between 10-14 hours sleep a night.

'When they sleep their heart rate and blood pressure goes down allowing their heart to replenish and rest.

'Children need a good amount of sleep for good development - especially brain development.

'I often get told they go to sleep too early - between 6-6.30 - but they fall asleep within minutes and sleep 12 hours a night.

'I don't care if Jane down the road lets her kids stay up until 10pm because she can't be bothered to sort a bedtime routine out.

'It doesn't affect me. I have done this routine with my children for years so it's normal for them'.

Before she puts the kids to bed, Rosie makes sure they have dinner, they play and relax together, bathe and are read a bedtime story. 

The busy mother makes sure she cooks dinner before her children return from school, to avoid plying them with snacks that would put them off dinner later.

'It doesn't make sense to me to give them a snack when they get in for them to tell me they are full up and not eat dinner.

'Currently there are no exceptions to this - after school clubs happen from 4:30 onwards so they eat before they leave'.

Rosie, who also doesn't allow her children to sleep over at anyone other than an immediate family member's home, is also cautious of too much screen time, placing an emphasis on outdoor play.

She explained: 'I'm not trying to raise children who live life through a screen.As long as you have the right clothes and shoes, there's no reason why children shouldn't be outside exploring in all weathers.

'It encourages them to use their imagination, social skills, teamwork and improves their physical health.

'My children love being outdoors and are only allowed on their tablets on a weekend. We don't use technology during the week and we get to spend proper quality time together.

'They don't spend their time sat inside on consoles - we're out together enjoying nature.

'They are also early risers so we get to spend two to three hours together before school'.

Rosie also opts to pay her children pocket money, which she feels helps teach discipline and budgeting skills.

She said: 'The children get £8 pocket money a week.

'They have to save £3 of it and get £5 to spend on the weekend if they have been respectful and done things such as made their beds throughout the week.

'If they haven't, then they get £1 taken off for every time they've been disrespectful to us or each other.

'It's important that this consequence is put in place because if not they will not learn cause and effect.

'They will grow up to think that it's OK to act disrespectfully because no consequences will occur and that doesn't happen in the real world.

'My family and friends are aware that I'm a self-confessed control freak so they're used to it'.

She said she has faced criticism online for the ways she raises her children.

Rosie said: 'I often get comments online saying "poor kids", "they don't have any fun" and "when do you spend time with them?"

'But these are comments often from lazy parents who lack the discipline to implement and keep going such a routine. I often get hateful and abusive comments on my social media.

'But if that's what it takes to raise respectful, intelligent, resilient, kind and caring children, then I'm OK with that'.

I set my kids extra homework and fine them for bad behaviour

My Simplest Grilled Salmon, a Summertime Staple

With orzo salad and a heavy pitcher of lemonade, that’s dinner tonight. Tomorrow’s breakfast: Jordan Marsh’s blueberry muffins.

Sam Sifton

By Sam Sifton

A white platter holds grilled salmon with lemon wedges.

Good morning. The nest that was empty is empty no more, as children return from college, as in-laws descend, and suddenly we’re up a few animals and down a few beds. The grocery bills are back to the mesosphere and yet we’re out of milk again, the second time in a week.

I’m at it like a line cook making staff meals for a neighborhood trattoria. Tonight: this excellent simply grilled salmon (above) to serve with orzo salad , thick with salty creaminess and slick sweet cucumbers, diced tomatoes, pops of chickpea, nodes of olive. Have some lemonade with that. We’ll talk theories and methods in American studies while we eat.

Tomorrow it’ll be Jordan Marsh’s blueberry muffins for breakfast, Boston proud, and maybe Philly cheesesteaks for lunch, because how fun would those be to make and devour in advance of an afternoon nap?

Then: barbecue chicken for dinner, the sauce thinned out with water so I can paint it onto the meat constantly, allowing a crust to build without the sugars burning, alongside fluffy Cheddar biscuits , potato salad and a mess of cold, sliced vegetables with green dip . And rhubarb crisp for dessert?

Yogurt can greet Sunday, with plenty of cut fruit, and I’ll follow it up with tea sandwiches for lunch. It’s surprising how quickly you can get into the rhythm of cooking for a crowd. It hardly seems like work, at least for the first couple of weeks. (When you find yourself flagging, buy cold cuts, extra cereal, interesting cheeses, cherry tomatoes, chips and salsa. Say, “Today, you are on your own.”)

Sunday’s dinner: steamed lobsters , parboiled baby potatoes rolled in hot butter and lots of roasted asparagus . Oh, stop. I’ve done the math on this. At least where I stay, it’s cheaper to buy lobsters than to order food from the place that papers the neighborhood with menus. Steamed lobster on a Sunday night sends a message: It’s summer and we’re American, living our lives in an imaginary Elin Hilderbrand novel . Save the steaming liquid for stock!

Now, it’s nothing to do with bergamot or prunes, but I had a good enough time watching “ A Man in Full ” on Netflix that it got me to dive back into the Tom Wolfe novel on which it’s based . ( Michael Lewis raved it in The Times in 1998.)

Speaking of the old days: Here’s Ross Barkan on Jimmy Breslin in The Point.

Staying on message, you should read Abe Streep, in The New Yorker, on Nova Scotia’s billion-dollar lobster wars .

Finally, here’s Little Feat, “ Why People Like That .” Play that nice and loud while you’re cooking. I’ll see you on Sunday.
