Usage notesEdit

  • (until): With pointlike events or places the meaning is clear. However, it is ambiguous when the given event itself is lasting for some time or the given object is such that it counts whether it is included, excluded or partially included.
    Szerdáig van időd. - You got time until Wednesday.
    • With exclusion: on Wednesday 00:01 A.M. you are already late (rare, probably would say keddig; until Tuesday)
    • With partial inclusion: the border line is somewhere during the day (most likely)
    • With full inclusion: you have the full Wednesday (also possible)
