hi, it's the first time I write down a question..^^

I just wonder which sentence is correct between "Will you go with me?: and "Will you come with me?"

and another question..

"A baby was born on a Sunday, 13th of May, 1999."

in this sentence, the article "a" before Sunday looks strange to me. What's the meaning of "a Sunday"?

When can I put an article before a day like Sunday, Monday etc?

Thank you in advance for your answer~^^!

Hello Vestigium,

Welcome to EnglishForward!

In answer to your questions above,

1. "Will you come with me?" is correct.

2. The baby was born on Sunday, the 13th of May 1999. (Here you use 'the' because you speak of a specific baby who was born on a specific date. If you say 'A baby was born on a Sunday', it could mean some baby was born on some Sunday.
Hello Vestigium, and welcome to English Forums.

I think that both "Will you go with me?" and "Will you come with me?" are fine; it all depends on the speaker's viewpoint: whether s/he is imagining the listener joining him/her on the trip-- both going together-- or following close upon, as it were:

I'm going to Hawaii next week-- do you want to go/come with me?

Very nice screen name, Vestigium.

Wish I'd thought of it.

Thanks a lot for your advice. though I couldn't catch the 'feel' of exact usage of both.

take care in the scorching summer!

I agree with him

and about the other question of yours I can say that sometimes we can use an indefinite article with a name of a day, which gives the meaning "one sunday day"

it can be said so in our culture but I dont know if it will be helpfull for you or not.

I hope it can..

Hi every one,Thank u for replies

I have a question regarding come vs. go with invitations. Is it proper to say, for example:

My online student invited me to come to Brazil. (The student in question lives in Brazil).

I believe the sentence should read: My online student invited me to go to Brazil.

Which is correct?
