1. In the evening, Sonya's father cooks dinner.

2. In the evenings, Sonya's father cooks dinner.

3. Evenings, Sonya's father cooks dinner.

4. Every evening, Sonya's father cooks dinner.

(What is the difference of the four sentences in meaning?)

I don't see any difference among the four sentences in meaning.

However, I do think sentences 1 and 4 are the best.
========================
1. In the evening, Sonya's father will come.
2. In the evenings, Sonya's father will come.
3. Every evening, Sonya's father will come.
4. This evening, Sonya's father will come.
(What is the difference among them? Which one is grammatical in this context?)
English - Writeacher, Monday, March 30, 2015 at 8:30am
There needs to be something after the word "come" -- perhaps the word "home" or the prepositional phrase "to the party" or something.

Otherwise, they're OK.
====================
Thank you for your help.

1. In the evening, Tom will come to see me.

2. In the evenings, Tom will come to see me.

3. Every evening, Tom will come to see me.

4. This evening, Tom will come to see me.
(#2 mean #3, right? Does #1 mean #4? In this case, #1 is different from #2. Is that right? Does #1 mean #4?)

asked by rfvv
  1. yes, 2 and 3 mean the same thing. 1 and 4 mean the same thing. 1 is different than 2; 1 uses the singular "evening," which could only mean one evening; 2 uses the plural, which means Tom comes more than once, probably every evening.
