Some Day & Someday
You’ve probably noticed that English has a ‘some day’ and a ‘someday’. When you’re writing, do you ever get stuck and wonder, “Is it two words or one word?” If you do, you’re not alone.
They both talk about an unspecific future time, but they have slightly different meanings.
Some day(phrase) – used to describe an unspecified but specific day in the near future
Synonyms: at some time, at some point, a day
Someday (adverb) – used to describe an indefinite and much later time or the distant future
Synonyms: sooner or later, eventually, ultimately, sometime
