This could provoke some debate. I would say "the latter part of the day", or refer to "later in the day". Emotion: smile
Maybe with some context? With English, you definitely cannot do without the context!

"Later" and "latter" are synonymous in the meaning of "more advanced in a period".
So "later" and "latter" are both correct in your sentence, though people seem to prefer the "latter".

You said it, Pieanne!! Ain't that the truth.
1. I read Arabic in the afternoon, and Greek in the morning. In my opinion, the latter half of the day is more conducive to the study of an ancient tongue.

2. I read Greek in the morning, and Arabic during the later half of the day.

Please tell me which one is correct in the following sentence:

I will be present in the latter(later) half of the day.

Thanks.
The best time to upgrade my machine is later next week in the latter half of the day.

Is this a good use!!!!
Means more like the other side of the afternoon. Ive read it in terms like, “the latter half of the toast”
