|Amatuka||The 'to' indicated by made can be time like (40 days) space like (Kyushu) or more metaphorical ([lit: up to raining])|| |
|Amatuka||Note there is some difference between までに and まで. |
まで : "I stayed up till 10pm"
[You actually went to bed at 10pm]
までに : "I had to get back by 10pm"
[You could come back earlier, but not later]
(Hmm, hope that last example is OK)
|your name||It's natural! ↑:)|| |
|your name||The 1st example ４０日間 is more natural.|| |
|bamboo4||In the first example, lyou don't even need まで or 間. I added the last example to add variety.|| |
|sevaa||Do they ever say "までは"?|
"３時までは、来ないでください。" for "Please don't come until 3."
Or would simple "３時まで" suffice?
|Miki||3時まで is sufficient.|
3時までは is used to emphasis. Please don't dare come to the meeting room until 3 as we are having an interview.
Is 来ます conjugated right, for 'dont come'?
|Drew||Examples 840 and 2906 are actually examples of "までに”("by") which doesn't have an entry in jgram but it should...|| |
|emilyjuno||Kevin, Yes, Konaide is the correct conjugation.|
Further, I believe Madeno is used when modifying a noun like if you used Made no in example 838 it would translate as: "I took the plane that goes from Tokyo to Kyushuu" (pretty sure anyway)
