Why could it not be "Wednesday through Tuesday?"
Through would include include Tuesday; until would stop before Tuesday.
what is the difference between this sentence and an earlier sentence-"vom Mann zum Vater"?why is the "von/vom" in this sentence considered dative but in the above sentence not?
Not a native speaker, but I am guessing it has something to do with the fact that, by all appearances, days of the week don't really take articles, and vom = von dem, right?
Yes, I have the same question. Also, if it's "am Mittwoch" and not "AN Mittwoch" why is it not "vom Mittwoch" but "VON Mittwoch"
Mittwoch = Midweek
Dienstag = ???
I came in search of the answer for your question. But for Thursday, please wikipedia it.
Thursday - Thor's day (German word for Thor is Donar.) Hence Donnerstag.
Donner also means thunder
What are the meanings of bis and von?
"bis = "until" and "von" = "from.
Are those the only meanings?
For "bis", pretty much, yes (it can also be translated as "to" in phrases like "von eins bis drei" = "from 1 until/to 3). "Von" can also mean "by" (e.g. in passive sentences), "in", etc. in certain contexts, but in general it primarily means "from".
From Wednesday to Tuesday was marked incorrect; do you think it should have been?
Nope, sounds acceptable enough. Report it if it was marked wrong.
I know right
Come on you could have allowed til....! It is short for until after all. ..
Till should be accepted I guess...But not til...;)
which day come in your calendar wednesday or tuesday
Can till and untill really be used interchangeably?
Till is one thing, but 'until' should only have one 'l'
