Q: Regarding some deadline or period, it is often mentioned with "by + specific date".
And it seems that the specific date is normally considered as included.
However, as far as I understand, "by something" means "beside it & close to it (but not touching)". Then, since it is not touching, I think the specific date shouldn't be included in the period.
Which idea is grammatically correct?
A: いい質問です!grammatically, the stated date should indeed be excluded. So "i will send this to you by Monday" means "I will send this to you before Monday arrives". But in colloquial English, the meaning of "by" is often changed to INCLUDE the stated date even though grammatically speaking, it should not be.
